One Extraordinary Value

Our tuition is half that of other schools in the region, and most students who are not already New Jersey residents can qualify for in-state tuition after their first year. What's more, good performance pays off: Rutgers Law has a tradition of awarding merit scholarships to students in their second and third years. All this means that you can afford to make career choices that aren't determined by burdensome debt—and still enjoy the benefits of the Rutgers name on your diploma and résumé.

Rutgers Law School is also dedicated to supporting our students with financing their legal education. We do this successfully through student loans, work-study employment, scholarships, grants, and repayment programs. Summer funding is also available for certain public interest work. And as a direct student loan institution, our financial aid office will guide you through the process to make the costs of your legal education as manageable as possible.

  • Out-of-State of Residents

 

 

 

 

 

Law students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents can qualify quickly for in-state tuition by establishing that they have become a New Jersey resident. This can be documented with

  • A current New Jersey driver's license

  • New Jersey voter registration

  • A long-term residential lease or house purchase
