Financing Your Law Degree

MSU Law students finance their education with a variety of resources -- personal savings and family assistance, scholarships, employment, and student loans. All of this can be overwhelming, so our goal is to do whatever we can to make the process easier for – and on – you.

Our Law School Financial Guide is also a great resource for learning about the financial aid process.

We’re here to help with whatever questions you have. Please call the Law College’s Office of Admissions at (517) 432-0222 to schedule an in-person or phone consultation with us. You can also email questions to ofalaw@msu.edu anytime.
