Cost of Attendance   


Financial Aid available for Law Students

2017-18

The Cost of Attendance Budget is broken down into Direct and Indirect Costs and is intended to cover educationally related expenses for the nine month academic year.  Tuition and Fees are considered Direct costs because you pay them directly to Seton Hall.  Students who enroll in the school's health insurance plan will also be billed for this charge.  Books, supplies,loan fees, and living expenses are considered Indirect costs.  Tuition is charged on a flat-rate basis per semester.  Items such as the cost of purchasing a laptop computer (one-time purchase), health insurance and parking expenses may be added to a student's budget on an individual basis.  Students with these or other unusual circumstances should contact the Office of Enrollment Services.
