Tuition and Financial Aid

New York Law School recognizes that financing a legal education represents a sizable investment in your future. While the primary responsibilities of financing your legal education rests with you and your family, the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid is committed to helping you find resources to do so. Our staff is available to meet with you to assist you in the application process, as well as counsel you on the variety of financing options available to help with education costs.

Financial aid may consist of funding from a variety of sources and may include loans, scholarships, grants, and work-study. The components of a financial aid award are determined by financial need, program, federal, state, or institutional eligibility standards and may come from federal, state, or institutional sources.

We recommend you apply for financial aid as soon as possible, even before learning of the admissions committee’s decision. You can file the required forms as soon as (but not before) January 1, 2014. Students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The school code for New York Law School is G02783.

Students applying for New York Law School need-based grants must also complete the parents’ sections of the 2014-2015 FAFSA.

The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid will wait until notification by the admissions committee that an offer of admission has been made before reviewing your eligibility for financial aid and offering an award. Notification may begin as early as March 2014 and continues until all admitted applicants have received their financial aid package.
