Tuition

Tuition is set based on standard JD and undergraduate credit-hour rates, with the addition of a “special events fee” which we use to offset the cost of the many non-classroom programs and events that make the Summer Sports Institute a truly immersive experience.

The comprehensive program fee, due when classes commence, is a flat $10,900 (including $500 seat deposit) for both in-state and out-of-state students. This all-inclusive fee covers tuition for the entire 6-credit program, access to the UO’s newly rennovated Student Recreation Center, and the cost of certain travel, meals and other events, including a class rafting trip down the McKenzie River, a visit to the Nike and adidas headquarters in Portland, and tickets to nearby sporting events.

Not included in the tuition is the cost of meals and entertainment. Students with cars will likely need to rent a parking space. Students will also need to purchase a casebook for approximately $189.

Financing

Each summer, most students finance their program fees and living expenses through federal financial aid and/or loans. Please work with the administrators at your home school to determine your financial aid eligibility as a visiting student. If you are awarded financial aid, the aid will be disbursed directly to you, and you will be responsible for paying the program tuition to the University of Oregon. To make this happen, your home-school financial aid administrators will need to complete a "consortium agreement" with the University of Oregon. You or they should contact Nicole Commissiong, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, who handles such matters on our end.

Scholarships

At this point in the program’s development, we unfortunately cannot offer merit- or needs-based tuition assistance.  However, if two or more students from the same law school attend the Institute, we will be pleased to offer all of those students a $1,000 scholarship.
