Finances and Financial Aid

The Law School Office of Financial Aid oversees financial aid processing for all Law students and manages Law School-funded programs for alumni in public interest careers. Our staff is here to assist with any financial aid topic both now while you're pursuing your degree as well as after graduation as you begin your legal career.

The Financial Aid Office determines financial aid eligibility and aid packages, sets the cost of attendance, processes financial aid awards and loans, manages entrance and exit loan counseling for federal loans, and certifies private/alternative loan requests. We also provide assistance to students and alumni who choose to work in public interest or government roles with our student Summer Public Interest Funding Program and the alumni Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP). Finally, we can assist with loan repayment questions and provide guidance on resources that are available to help manage the loan repayment process.

The Financial Aid Office is located in the Student Services Suite on the 3rd floor of the Law School's Library. You can set up a virtual or in-person appointment to meet with a member of the team using our online booking tool or you can contact us at

The University of Chicago Bursar’s Office is a related office outside of the Law School that can provide guidance on billing and payment topics, including tuition and fees, billing policies and dates, direct deposit of refunds, electronic billing and payment processing, and tax information.
