Cost of Attendance

The cost of attendance at Ave Maria School of Law is based on the amount needed to meet direct institutional costs and provide a moderate allowance for living expenses for the nine-month academic year. Individual living and personal expenses may vary and costs in excess of established allowances will have to be met from other sources. It should also be noted that the cost of attendance is related to your status as a student and cannot be increased to accommodate financial obligations beyond that status.
