Financial aid is an important part of financing your law school education. At Denver Law, 88% of students receive some type of financial aid, including federal student loans, and about 47% of incoming students receive merit scholarships.

Students can receive financial aid up to their Cost of Attendance (or Student Budget). The cost of attendance includes both direct costs (tuition and fees) which are billed by the university and indirect costs (living expenses, books, etc) which are not billed directly to you but are a part of the costs of attending law school. It is meant to provide an estimate of the cost of one year at Denver Law; each students actual expenses, especially living expenses, will vary.

For the 2014-15 Academic Year, tuition is set at $1,404/credit. To get a complete schedule of tuition and fees charges, please visit the University Registrar’s Office.
