PAYING FOR LAW SCHOOL

The Florida A&M University College of Law offers a comprehensive financial aid program that includes institutional grants and federal loan programs to help eligible students meet the expenses associated with attaining a legal education.  These funds are awarded and administered by the Office of Financial Aid at the College of Law in conjunction with the University’s Office of Financial Aid.

A limited number of institutional scholarships are available to students entering the College of Law.  All admitted students are automatically considered for available scholarships. A separate scholarship application is not needed. Additional donor scholarships are listed on the scholarship listing. For the majority of students, federally-sponsored student loans will be the most common type of financial aid available.

Students who anticipate receiving any form of financial aid, including federally funded student loans must complete either- 1) the U.S. Department of Education RENEWAL Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or 2) a standard Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The information submitted on this application will determine your eligibility for loans under both the Federal Loan programs. To obtain the FAFSA online, visit www.fafsa.gov. The school code for FAMU is 001480.

Applicants who intend to apply for financial aid may contact the College of Law Financial Aid Office directly at 407-906-0468 / 407-254-4004 / 407-254-3232 for more information and assistance.  Applicants are encouraged to begin the financial aid application process early.
