JUNE 17, 2020 — Charleston School of Law will keep tuition the same for the 2020-2021 academic year. Additionally, accepted students will benefit from a freeze on their law school tuition while pursuing their legal education.
“The School of Law is sensitive to the cost of a legal education and student debt, as well as the ongoing impacts of COVID-19,” said Jacqueline Bell, Associate Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid. “The administration has also pledged to lock in this tuition for accepted students for the remainder of their law school career.”
The Charleston School of Law is committed to keeping legal education costs reasonable for its students. The average law school tuition, according to U.S. News & World Report, is $49,548 with the highest tuition at $72,465. The Charleston School of Law’s tuition comes in well below the average, providing a more affordable option for those looking to study law.
The Charleston School of Law provides scholarships to students each year, based on merit and/or need. During the 2019-2020 academic year the law school provided just under $10 million in total institutional scholarships.
