Regent Law Financial Aid

Regent University and the School of Law are committed to recognizing and rewarding academic excellence. Regent Law awarded more than $4.4 million in scholarships and grants to the Fall 2015/Spring 2016 student body. In recent years, more than 95 percent of Regent Law students have received assistance through some form of financial aid. Regent Law students typically finance their law school education through a combination of personal and family resources, income from employment, educational loans, grants, and scholarship assistance. Additionally, some students secure on-campus graduate assistant positions to supplement their income.

Regent University has many forms of financial aid including:

The law school awards a variety of scholarships, grants, and endowments. Usually, one best award is made to students who qualify. All awards are made for the academic year for the fall and spring semesters. Typically, no awards are made for the summer semester. Scholarships are awarded on a per-student basis and consider the student's academic profile, evidence of leadership, employment experience and other financial resources. Students must be accepted to the law school prior to a scholarship decision. All awards are made before the beginning of the academic year. Students who receive awards are notified via email. Graduate school scholarships are applicable only toward law school tuition. Students will need to secure funds to cover other cost-of-attendance expenses (room, board, fees, personal, and travel).
