Financial Aid

Even as an affordable law school choice, however, the College of Law recognizes that many students need financial aid to afford the full cost of legal education. Each year, WVU Law assists students in accessing a range of financial aid, including loans, scholarships, grants, graduate assistantships, and college work-study.

Your first step to be considered for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Even before you’re accepted to the College of Law, we encourage you to apply for financial aid by March 1. The Federal School Code for WVU is 003827.

Future law school students are awarded scholarships through the College of Law as well as through outside agencies. Except for the requirement of a completed FAFSA by March 1, no separate application is required for consideration for our law school scholarships.

In addition to opportunities for financial aid and scholarship support, students also benefit from our law school’s acclaimed quality and excellence, including being ranked among the nation’s top law schools by U.S. News & World Report.
