Apply now for an application fee waiver

The value of a degree from Michigan State Law becomes that much greater as a result of our generous scholarship and grant program, which provides as many as 150 full- and partial-tuition awards to incoming students.

Candidates who contact the MSU Law Office of Admissions by December 15 will be granted an application fee waiver for the 2013–14 admission cycle. All candidates who apply to the Law College by February 1 will be given full consideration for scholarship aid; a separate scholarship application is not required. Those who apply after February 1 will be considered based on availability of funds. Candidates who wish to be considered for need-based grant assistance must submit all required application materials by February 20. Award notifications generally are sent together with offers of admission.

Fee waiver requests may be directed to the Michigan State Law Office of Admissions at
