Grant application policy
Note: The following policy is in compliance with federal, state, and School of Law regulations and policies. Need-based grant assistance is financed by the University; grant assistance is NOT a federal program. Many law schools do require parent information when considering a student for institutional need-based programs.
All JD students who are accepted by the University of Connecticut School of Law will be considered for need-based university grant assistance for fall and spring semesters. (Students holding F-1, F-2, J-1, or J-2 visas are not eligible for any financial assistance.) The Tuition Remission Grant Program will be awarded to eligible evening and day students. The prioirity deadline for 2013-2014 financial assistance is April 1, 2013 for incoming students even if a student is not accepted by this date. The priority deadline for returning students is May 17, 2013. These deadlines will be strictly enforced. Grant funding is limited. Applications received after the deadlines may be considered for loans only. Late applications for university need-based aid will be reconsidered for grant assistance at the beginning of the fall semester if there are any remaining funds.
Note: LLM students who meet federal eligibility requirements are eligible ONLY for Federal Stafford Loans.
