At Cleveland-Marshall College of Law:

We are committed to ensuring that every qualified student, regardless of financial need, can pursue a legal education. We have a full service financial aid office located in the Law Building, and we offer a quality education at an affordable price.


All scholarships (money that does not need to be repaid) for entering students are distributed by the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid. Scholarships range from $2000 to full tuition. There is no special application process; simply apply for admission to the college and you will be considered for scholarship money. Last year 46% of entering law students received scholarships.

For a listing of current outside scholarships for which you may qualify or compete, please see the Current Scholarships page.


About 80% of the law students receive loans. The average loan is $17,000 per year and the average debt for a graduating law student is $62,000.


Deferments are available for most of your existing educational loans. Simply request the deferment forms from your loan servicer(s), complete the student section, and forward the form to Marcie Rechner, Director of Student Records in the Law Building, Room 142.
