Manage Your Debt

The choices you make while in law school can have a long-lasting impact on your financial future.  Be sensible when borrowing student loans and never borrow more than what you need to cover your basic educational expenses!  Personal expenses such as housing, food, and books are not billed directly to your student bursar account.  These types of costs vary between students and may be less than what is estimated in our Cost of Attendance.

The Financial Aid Office encourages students to utilize personal resources and reduce expenses whenever possible.  Use the Budget Calculator to determine how much you think you need to borrow - if your original estimate is too high (or too low) schedule a meeting with the Financial Aid Office to revise your student loan request.  Loan adjustments can be made throughout the semester for which the loan is borrowed.
