J.D. Tuition

The cost of a legal education includes tuition, fees, books, room and board, transportation, and personal expenses.

Tuition and fees are payable each semester. Complete payment of these charges is due no later than the first day of class for each semester as displayed on the academic calendar. Any student account not paid in full on the first day of classes will be subject to a late fee. No student is authorized to attend classes until arrangements for payment of tuition and fees have been approved by the Business Office.
