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. The cost of attendance for 2019-20 will be available mid-February 2019.

Aid Options

  • Denver Law Scholarships
    • Students are automatically considered for merit scholarships through the admission process.
    • Applicants with a strong academic background and demonstrated interest in public service, can apply for our Chancellor Scholarship.
    • Scholarships awarded at the time of admission to Denver Law are renewable for 6 semesters for Full-time students and 8 semesters for Part-time students. Additionally, continuing students can apply for our Named Scholarships which are awarded on an annual basis.
  • Federal Student Loans
    • To be considered for Federal Student Loans, you must submit a 2019-20 FAFSA to the University of Denver. The priority deadline for new students is January 15th. And for continuing students is March 15th.
  • Federal Work Study
    • Please be aware that full-time students are strongly discouraged from working during their first year. While work study may be available, you may want to consider deferring employment until after your first year (or at least after your first semester)
  • Private Student Loans
    • Private loan programs may offer interest rates and terms that are competitive with those of federal loans. However, as you consider your borrowing options, you should keep in mind that federal student loans are required by law to provide a range of flexible repayment options, including income-based repayment plans, and loan forgiveness benefits, which private loans are not required to provide. 
  • In addition to financial aid provided by Denver Law, there may be other resources available to assist you with paying for your law school education.
