Financial Aid & Scholarships

The Financial Aid Office administers various federal and state financial aid programs and offers an extensive network of services to assist students in meeting the costs related to their education. Individual financial counseling, assistance with the completion of the financial aid application, debt management counseling, scholarship postings and information about on-campus and off-campus job opportunities are offered to students as part of a comprehensive approach to assisting students in financing their law school education.

Although the basic responsibilities for financing law school rest with you and your family, the Financial Aid Office utilizes the maximum available federal and state aid resources to assemble a financial aid package consisting of grants, loans, scholarships and student employment for eligible students.

Financial aid at CUNY School of Law is administered without discrimination as to age, sex, race, creed, national origin, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, marital status or veteran status. An applicant may be excluded from all programs if in default in the repayment of a previous student loan.
