Paying for Law School

The University of Idaho College of Law has been named a Best Value Law School by preLaw Magazine. We offer one of the most affordable law programs in the nation with a strong return through career opportunities. Idaho residents can expect to pay less than half of what they would pay at most other schools – public or private – in the region.

For students from outside Idaho, our non-resident tuition is significantly lower than schools in surrounding states. In addition, students from the 16 WICHE participating states and territories are eligible for in-state tuition through the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP). Students from other states, who reside in Idaho for 12 months will qualify for in-state tuition making an education at Idaho Law more affordable for out-of-state students.

Financial Aid FAQ

To apply for federal financial aid, you must submit a FAFSA. To be considered for priority, you must submit a FAFSA by Dec. 1 and list the University of Idaho (federal code 001626). Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for federal aid. See our Financial Aid website for more details.

Your application to Idaho Law is your application for scholarship consideration. The key factors in scholarship consideration are the high LSAT score and the cumulative undergraduate GPA. Scholarships awarded to entering students are renewable for each of the three years of law school provided the student remains in good academic standing.

Financial Aid

Federal financial aid is available through the University of Idaho Office of Student Financial Aid Services to qualified students in the form of Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loans and Graduate Plus Loans.

To apply, complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The FAFSA should be completed, loans accepted and promissory notes signed by August 1 to assure the availability of funds at the beginning of the fall semester.

Idaho Law Scholarships

Idaho Law awards a number of scholarships to incoming students. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic ability and professional promise. Applicants are considered for an Idaho Law scholarship at the time of determining admission and, if selected to receive a scholarship, will have that indicated on the Letter of Scholarship. Limited scholarships for continuing students may be available based on academic achievement. With very few exceptions, most scholarships are renewable for up to three (3) years, as long as the student maintains good standing at the end of each spring semester.
