The annual cost of attendance budget is directly related to the amount of financial aid available to you each year. The total amount of financial aid, including private loans, cannot exceed the total cost of attendance budget. Please note that the annual cost of attendance budget for part time students is based on 10 units for the fall semester and 10 units for the spring semester (20 units for the academic year). Part time evening budgets for individual students will be adjusted depending on the unit load per semester and actual tuition costs are calculated on a per unit basis. The cost of attendance budget can also be increased for certain expenses that a student may incur outside their normal budget such as medical or insurance costs, a one-time computer purchase, or child care costs. The cost of attendance budget can also be adjusted if a law student decides to enroll in a summer session program. Students should contact the law school's financial aid administrator for information on requesting an increase in the cost of attendance budget.
