Information for International Students

While the School of Law does offer Merit Scholarships to qualified international LLM applicants, we are unable to provide comprehensive funding that covers full tuition costs or living expenses. 

International applicants who plan to obtain a student visa should carefully review our visa information web page for details about the financial certification required in order to apply for a visa.

We encourage international applicants to seek additional sources of funding, such as private loans, grants, fellowships, or scholarships from other organizations.  The School of Law does offer private student loans to eligible international students through the Law Access Private Loan Program.  Please visit the Financial Aid website for further information.

Applicants should seek scholarships and additional funding in their home country and in the United States.  Some outside sources of funding are listed below:
