Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance

The cost of attending New York Law School includes our tuition and fees as well as the room and board, books and supplies, and additional living expenses that may vary. While the primary responsibility 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.

Financial aid may consist of funding from a variety of sources and may include loans, scholarships, grants, and work-study. We recommend you apply for financial aid as soon as possible, even before learning of the Admissions Committee’s decision. For more information, visit our Financial Aid page and Scholarships page.
