How to Apply

The Law School operates its own Financial Aid Office, which is separate from the University's Financial Aid Office. This allows for personal, individualized service to our law students. We are dedicated to providing outstanding service to our students and families and invite you to contact us if you have any questions about financial aid opportunities at Syracuse University College of Law.

The Financial Aid Office will be in contact throughout the application process to Syracuse Law. Communications will be sent to students providing instructions to take if the student is applying for financial aid. To ease the process of applying for financial aid, the Financial Aid Calendar alongside the steps below help to direct students through the financial aid process. We recommend that students complete the requirements on their Financial Aid “To Do List” by the Priority Deadline: January 15, 2018. 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.

Further clarification of the steps below is provided by clicking on the step link. If there are remaining questions or concerns, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

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.
