Financial Aid

On our website you will find information about the various types of financial aid available to you, including institutional awards, federal and private loans, and external scholarship opportunities.

The amount of aid available, the form in which it is given, and the conditions for its awarding depend on a number of factors, including law school policies, as well as federal and state regulations, all of which may be modified at any time. There is no guarantee that the particular programs, fee structures, or policies will remain unchanged.

NYU School of Law devotes substantial resources to financial aid, including institutional grants, scholarship programs, and our Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). Legal education is a significant investment of time, effort, and money. It should be approached with a full understanding of both the benefits and the costs. NYU School of Law evaluates admissions applications without considering family financial strength or ability to pay.

The majority of students in US law schools finance their legal education with loansfederal and private. Most US citizens or permanent residents are eligible for federal Unsubsidized and/or Graduate PLUS loans.  Private student loans are available to US citizens or permanent residents and international students, if eligible.
