Financing Law School

At Washburn Law you will receive a solid legal education and learn practical skills at a practical price. Tuition is similar to that at other public law schools and is well below the cost of most private law schools.

Washburn Law's In-State Tuition program may also assist with financing your legal education (scroll down).

In-State Tuition for Colorado, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska Residents and Military Veterans

New law students who are residents of Colorado, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, or Nebraska are eligible for in-state tuition through the Interstate Tuition Waiver Program.

  • Students receiving the Interstate Waiver must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) at Washburn to remain eligible.
  • Continuous eligibility is required to maintain the Interstate Waiver. Students who do not maintain eligibility can, however, establish Kansas residency in order to pay Kansas resident tuition rates.

Students may apply for resident status after they have lived in Kansas for six months. Contact the Admissions Office for requirements.

Military Veterans

Active duty and veteran military who have received an honorable discharge (shown on DD Form 214), their spouses, and dependents qualify for in-state tuition. See also information about the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Financial Aid

Washburn Law recognizes that financial aid is an important part of your education decision. The Washburn University Financial Aid Office assists law students with the process of applying for and receiving financial aid. Throughout this process, the staff provides personal guidance to all students. Please visit Washburn University Financial Aid for answers to commonly asked questions, or call (800) 524-8447.
