Your LL.M., Master and Diploma Investment
Graduate school is an investment in your career. To calculate how much it will cost, first determine whether your program would be a residential degree program, a limited residency or available online.
You can expect the additional costs of books, supplies, rent (if applicable), food and child care (if applicable) on top of tuition and fees.
We attempt to make available as many scholarships as possible to help reduce tuition costs. However, students should not expect scholarships to cover the entire cost. Scholarships also are only available for residential degree programs.

Your cost of living is variable. The good news is that housing costs in the immediate Concord area, since it is a small city, are typically lower than a large metropolitan area.
About two-thirds of our students live in apartments within walking distance. Others choose to commute from greater distances.

Your Funding Options
Financing a legal education can be challenging. That is particularly true for foreign students who have limited employment opportunities because of visa and academic restrictions.
If you are a foreign student, you do not have access to U.S. federal loans or Federal Work Study. (The Federal Work Study program allows a qualifying U.S. citizen or permanent resident to earn money instead of borrowing it.)
You should check with your country’s government since many do have scholarships available for education.
Foreign students have access to numerous free scholarship sites and excellent search engines specific to international funding.
