As a result, students gain an excellent education and high return on their investment in the future.  Each semester students pay for the number of credits in which they are enrolled plus university fees.  Full-time students may take between 9 and 12 credits each semester, and part-time students may take between 3 and 6 credits per semester.

Outside Funding Resources

Although program fees at UConn Law are among the lowest of any top-tier law schools in the United States, we understand that an LLM degree still presents a significant investment for tuition, fees and living expenses. We highly encourage all international students to seek financial aid and scholarship funds from sources in their home countries to supplement any merit scholarship you may receive from UConn School of Law.

Scholarship sources could include employers, government agencies, and foundations.  One of the best sources for relevant scholarships is EducationUSA.  We recommend that all international applicants reach out to an in-country EducationUSA advisor in their home country to identify potential funding sources.  Find a Education USA Advising Center

Outside scholarship deadlines are often earlier than application deadlines, so it is important that you do your research and apply in advance, generally 6-12 months prior to beginning your LLM.  UConn School of Law has compiled outside scholarship and funding resources for our LLM applicants.
