Cost and Aid
Financial support from the State of Illinois and our “Pay It Forward” pledge allows graduates of the SIU School of Law to enjoy an average debt load that is below the national law school average. In fact, SIU Law was ranked 21 out of 193 law schools for average debt incurred at graduation by US News in their annual Best Law Schools rankings.
TUITION AND FEES
As the only public law school in the southern Illinois region, SIU Law is committed to affordability by offering a one-rate tuition for all domestic students. This means all domestic students, regardless of their residency, pay the same tuition rate!
Student loans and work-study opportunities are administered by the university's Financial Aid Office.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS
SIU School of Law offers competitive admissions scholarships up to the cost of tuition. Scholarships awarded at time of admission are unconditional and guaranteed for all three years of legal education long as the recipient remains in good academic standing.
