As a result, students gain an excellent education and high return on their investment in the future.  Each semester students pay for the number of credits in which they are enrolled plus university fees.  Full-time students may take between 9 and 12 credits each semester, and part-time students may take between 3 and 6 credits per semester.

Students may also apply for Academic Merit Scholarships after completing one semester.

Outside Funding Resources

We highly encourage all international students to seek financial aid and scholarship funds from sources in their home countries to supplement any merit scholarship you may receive from UConn School of Law.

Scholarship sources could include employers, government agencies, and foundations.  One of the best sources for relevant in-country scholarships is EducationUSA.

UConn School of Law has compiled outside scholarship and funding resources for our LLM applicants.
