An Indiana Law graduate degree: top-ranked, yet affordable

We recognize the financial burden that completing a US law program can create. Because of our low tuition rates and the very affordable cost of living in our wonderful city of Bloomington, at Indiana Law you get a top-tier law program without the top-tier cost.

Using Indiana Law and other top-tier US law schools as the example, it is very clear that we not only offer a degree that will be globally recognized and respected by employers and other universities alike, but we do so at the lowest cost:

Financial documentation requirement

Financial documentation is only required of admitted international applicants and is not a factor in admissions decisions. You can learn more about financial documentation on the website for the Office of International Services. U.S. immigration regulations require applicants to demonstrate that they will have sufficient funds to cover expenses for a 12-month period. Proof of funds usually includes bank statements or scholarship letters. Funds should be liquid. All documents should be current; documents older than one year from the time of the student’s intended enrollment cannot be accepted. To avoid delays in receiving the supporting documents for your visa (I-20 or DS-2019), we recommend that you submit the financial documentation immediately after you are admitted.
