2005-2006 Law Catalog [ARCHIVED BULLETIN]

Tuition and Fees

An applicant for admission who has been accepted must pay a deposit of $850 to secure a position in the incoming class. The deposit is not refundable after April 1, but is credited toward payment of first-year tuition. A second deposit of $500 is due by June 1. This second deposit is not refundable after July 1. This second deposit is also credited toward payment of first-year tuition. Students receiving full-tuition scholarships are not required to pay the second deposit.

Applicants who are accepted are urged to send in their first deposit by registered mail, because until we have received the deposit, the applicant’s place at the Law School cannot be assured. Any delay in sending the deposit, therefore, may result in acceptance of another applicant (in which event the late deposit will be returned).

Tuition for the first semester must be paid by the date indicated on the bill. Failure to make timely tuition payment, or to make alternate arrangements satisfactory to the Office of Student Accounts, will result in forfeiture of the student’s place and selection of another candidate.

Tuition and fees for each semester thereafter must be paid in full prior to the start of lectures as directed by the Office of Student Accounts at the University. (For the remission policy, see Withdrawal from the School of Law in the Course of Study section.)

Students applying for University-owned housing will be charged a prepayment housing fee of an additional $300 to be considered for such accommodations.

We estimate that the cost for new casebooks, which may be obtained at the University Bookstore, will be $900 for the entire year. Used copies may be substituted.
