Funding Your Law School Education

A majority of Law School students receive financial aid, including scholarships and loans, to help fund their legal education. An online process provides convenient access to the financial aid application and disbursement. Additional information and resources available by visiting the One Stop Student Services website or by contacting Jim Parker,, 612-626-0750.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may be submitted after January 1. Admitted students will receive an estimate of their financial aid package around the time of admission. Final tuition rates for the academic year will be determined in July, and admitted students can expect to receive their final financial aid package in early August. Be sure to release your information to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities by including the U of M Federal School Code of 003969.
