How to Apply for Financial Aid
Applying for Aid
Syracuse University College of Law operates its own Financial Aid Office, which is separate from Syracuse University's Financial Aid Office.
This arrangement allows for personal, individualized help, and we are dedicated to providing outstanding service to our students and families. Please contact us if you have any questions about financial aid opportunities at the College of Law.
The Financial Aid Office will be in contact throughout the application process, and communications will be sent to students providing instructions when applying for financial aid. To ease the process of applying for financial aid, the steps below will provide direction through the process. We recommend that students complete the requirements on their financial aid “to do list” by the Priority Deadline: February 1, 2021. If you miss the Priority Deadline, we recommend that you complete the requirements as soon as possible in order to be packaged in time for the new academic year.
A note for international students enrolling or returning to Syracuse University College of Law: Foreign students admitted to the J.D. and LL.M. programs who are not US Citizens or Permanent Residents are not eligible for federal student loans offered through the US Department of Education and should not submit a FAFSA.
All candidates are considered for merit scholarships, and the Office of Financial Aid can advise on additional outside sources of funding that may be available to foreign students.
