We recognize the unique and intrinsic value of each person and are committed to serving everyone in an environment of equality, responsibility, and dignity.
Chances are good that we will play a key role in your law-school experience: More than 95% of GU law students take advantage of the various financial aid programs we offer.
Understanding Financial Aid
Financial aid is monetary assistance intended to help you meet the expense of attending law school.
Budget allowances are based on the costs a typical law student will incur – including tuition, books, fees and living expenses – but do not account for the costs associated with supporting a family.
Your Financial Aid Package
Any number of tools are available to help finance your law school education. The Financial Aid Office will work with you to create a package that best satisfies your needs. It might include a combination of loans, scholarships, work-study employment, and other awards.
Each year, your award package will be summarized in a document called the Official Award of Financial Aid Notice. Once we have received your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the agency that administers the federal financial aid program, we will prepare your award package.
This award is made for Fall and Spring semesters and takes into account institutional scholarships which you were awarded during the admissions process, as well as any other scholarships you receive.
It assumes you will be enrolled on a full-time basis.
PLEASE NOTE: All students will receive an email with instructions to go to ZagWeb and either accept or decline financial aid.
If you do not file the FAFSA, you will not be reviewed for federal or state assistance of any type. However, you may still be eligible for certain merit scholarships.
