Thinking about law school and your finances? Law students can qualify for federal work-study and federal non-need based loan programs to both pay for tuition, fees and education related expenses. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) provides annual access to federal aid. Use Mitchell Hamline’s FAFSA code G02391 when you apply. We’ll receive your FAFSA, and when you are admitted, we’ll provide aid amounts and information. The 2022-23 FAFSA can be submitted after October 1, 2021 and uses tax year 2020 information.
The Federal Direct Lending program provides loans which can pay for the entire cost of your degree and living expenses- see our links for details. We have no formal deadline for filing the FAFSA. Early application lets you plan to be ready for the start of your program. There is no obligation to borrow when you file the FAFSA.
Tuition due dates are posted on the Student Finances pages.
