Estimated Cost of Attendance

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is the maximum amount of financial assistance available to a student in one academic year. The COA is based on residency and the flat-rate tuition charges for students enrolled in 12-14 credits per semester. Students enrolled part-time will have their COA adjusted based on the per credit tuition rate. 

Applicants are awarded 100% of the Cost of Attendance with assistance from federal and institutional resources. Scholarships are awarded by the Carey School of Law Office of Admissions (
