The timeframe to apply for 2014-15 loans begins in May 2014. Entering matriculated students may now apply for loans.  Returning law students should wait to apply for 14-15 loans until receipt of their award notices which will be emailed in early June.

Educational loans only can be borrowed during the loan period for which a student is enrolled at least half time.  The loan period is defined as the timeframe between the first day of classes and the last day of classes.  Loans cannot be borrowed during periods of non-enrollment and new loans cannot be certified after the loan period has ended.
