Financial Information

Most students find that the cost of a graduate legal education at Indiana Law is considerably less than comparable programs at private universities or public universities in large, metropolitan areas. U.S. immigration regulations require applicants to demonstrate that they will have sufficient funds to cover expenses for a 12-month period. Instructions for providing financial documentation can be found at the bottom of the page.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

All accepted applicants are automatically considered for fellowships and scholarships; because our tuition rates are already lower than most, past scholarships have ranged from $1,000 to 25 percent of tuition. Funds from third-party sources are also available. The following third-party sources have supported Indiana Law graduate students in the past:

The Institute for International Education (IIE) Web site is a clearinghouse for information on a large number of scholarships and fellowships available to non-U.S. students.
