Tuition and Financial Aid
A competitive tuition rate and generous scholarships and financial aid make Duquesne University School of Law affordable.
The School of Law dedicates a significant amount of scholarship support for incoming law students - funding that continues to increase. Learn what you need to know about scholarships.
Financial Aid is handled through the Duquesne University Financial Aid Office. To apply for financial aid, students must submit the FAFSA online by the May 31 priority deadline.
Applicants to the School of Law should not wait until admission to submit their financial aid application. In addition to scholarship aid, other forms of financial aid offered by the School of Law may include:
A number of School of Law work-study grants-in-aid for partial tuition credit are available. Recipients of such grants-in-aid are required to adequately perform certain duties as a Law School library aide, Law School faculty research assistant or Law School administration aide for five to 10 hours per week during the entire academic year. In return, the student will receive a designated amount of tuition assistance that is directly applied to that student’s account.
Federally Funded and Institutional Aid - Loans
Financial assistance that is designated as federally funded or institutional aid is processed centrally through Duquesne University’s Financial Aid Office. This includes the Stafford Loan, GradPLUS Loans, Law Access and Law loans. The Law School itself does not process this aid. Interested students should submit their FAFSA and Duquesne University Financial Aid Application to the Financial Aid Office before May 31. Read about the application procedure.
Loan Repayment Assistance Program
