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 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

The College of Law awards credential-based scholarships to incoming students. These scholarships are determined largely by LSAT score and undergraduate GPA. Applicants are considered for a College of Law scholarship at the time of admission and no separate application is required. Applicants receiving awards are notified in their scholarship letter. Some scholarships for continuing students may be available from endowed funds and awarded based on criteria established by our generous alumni. Almost all scholarships are renewable for up to three (3) years, as long as the student remains in good academic standing and maintains a full-time course load.

Please contact the College of Law should you have questions about these scholarships.
