Prospective Students

The Law School Financial Aid Office has many functions, among the most important of which is getting funds (loans, scholarship and/or federal work-study eligibility) to Tulane law students as painlessly as possible. More importantly, we try to make sure that Tulane law students are informed students--able to make mature and responsible decisions about the amount of educational loans they can afford, and to examine the worthiness of making immediate personal sacrifices to keep the amount of educational debt as low as possible.

Financial Information

A law school education may well be the largest investment in a student's life.  Students are encouraged to talk with the Law School administration and faculty about the value of a Tulane legal education and likely income after graduation, and with the staff of the Law Financial Aid Office about the variety of repayment options.  Students are also urged to gather together as many family resources as possible and to live as frugally as possible during law school in order to minimize the amount they must borrow.

If you are offered admission to the Law School, we will inform you of the maximum amount of educational loan eligibility available, after scholarship funds and outside resources are determined, and after the processing results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are received.  This is not a guarantee of loan funding.  Nor is it an endorsement of borrowing every dollar available: to the contrary, we are very concerned that applicants be aware of the effect that their borrowing decisions will have on their future standard of living.  We hope you take the opportunity to carefully consider the costs and benefits of borrowing before you enroll in any law school.

Cost of Attendance
