Most students would not be able to afford law school without some form of financial assistance. The Financial Aid Office at California Western School of Law administers student loans and work-study programs, and also coordinates scholarships awarded by other departments, such as Admissions or Diversity Services.

How to Apply For Financial Aid

  1. Check financial aid deadline dates: while you may apply for aid after these dates, the full array of aid sources may not still be available if you apply late.

  2. Complete a 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The California Western School of Law institution code is G13103

  3. Complete a California Western School of Law Online Financial Aid Application for 2013-2014 and submit it to the Financial Aid Office. Students must be accepted for admission before they submit an application; instructions on establishing a login will generally be emailed to you within a week of your admission.
