Need-based scholarship decisions will be made by the Office of Admission based on financial need. There are no GPA or LSAT score requirements to qualify for need-based scholarship funds. Accepted students who are offered a merit scholarship typically do not also qualify for a need-based scholarship. There are separate applications for students enrolling in the spring semester and those enrolling in the fall semester. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admission by email or by phone at 843.377.2143.
Applicants for spring or summer admission who wish to be considered for need-based scholarship funds should complete the scholarship application. This application is only for students enrolling at the law school for the first time during the spring or summer semester. The deadline to apply is Dec. 15.
