Law Cost of Attendance (COA)

Students Seeking a Degree of Juris Doctor (J.D.)

A student's COA is determined by their enrollment status each semester. The four possible enrollment statuses are: 12 or more credits, 9 to 11 credits, 6 to 8 credits and 1 to 5 credits. When initial award offers are made it is assumed that law students will be enrolled in 12 or more credits. During the final review process the COA is adjusted to reflect the status a student reports in answering the financial aid questions in CyberBear. It may be adjusted again at the start of the term to reflect actual enrollment status.
