Financial Aid and Scholarships
Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA)
LL.M. students who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or eligible noncitizens may be eligible for federal financial aid to help pay the costs of attending the University of Oregon School of Law. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the first week in February for receipt by the University of Oregon's Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships by the March 1 priority deadline of the year for which aid is sought. Because some funds are limited, applicants are encouraged to submit the FAFSA even if they have not yet been admitted to the School of Law or have not yet filed their federal tax return. For questions about student loans, the FAFSA or elibility, contact the University of Oregon's Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarship. Read more.
