SCHOLARSHIP, DISCOUNT AND FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION FOR MSJ AND ONLINE GRADUATE CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS AT SETON HALL LAW SCHOOL

SCHOLARSHIPS:

A limited number of scholarships equal to 25% of tuition (a “Graduate Program Scholarship”) may be awarded each year to applicants to the online Graduate Certificate Programs and/or the Master of Science in Jurisprudence program.

In order to be eligible for a “Graduate Program” scholarship, an applicant must be currently employed by a government, not-for-profit or public interest entity. Scholarship applicants must have completed the regular application process before an application for a scholarship will be considered.

An application for a scholarship must be submitted in writing to lawonline@shu.edu at least one (1) month prior to the start date of the Program to which the student is applying. As the number of scholarships awarded is extremely limited, applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. The phrase “SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION” should be written in the subject line and the email should specify the Program for which the applicant is applying. The email should contain the applicant’s full name, title, employer and length of time employed. Contact information for the applicant’s employer must also be provided.

DISCOUNTS:

          Alumni Discount: Alumni who have received a degree from Seton Hall University are entitled to a 10% discount off tuition provided the student’s alumni status is set forth on the student’s initial application.

          Government Discount: Full-time federal and state employees are entitled to a 10% discount off tuition provided the discount is requested at the time of the student’s initial application and verification of the student’s employment status is provided prior to the start date of the online Graduate Certificate Program.

          Corporate Discount: A 10% discount per student is available to employers who have three (3) or more employees registered for one of Seton Hall Law School’s online Graduate Certificate Programs in the same semester (Fall, Spring or Summer) provided all three employees apply to, pay for and begin their online Graduate Certificate Programs in the same semester. The discount will be applied to each employee’s tuition provided the employee listed the employer on his or her initial application. Discounts will only be applied in the semester during which the employees are registered and will not be applied retroactively or prospectively.

          A 25% discount per student will be awarded to employers who have six (6) or more employees registered for one of Seton Hall Law School’s online Graduate Certificate Programs in the same semester (Fall, Spring or Summer) provided all six employees apply to, pay for and begin their online Graduate Certificate Programs in the same semester.
