Tuition 2017 - 2018
After careful research, analysis, and budgeting, Concordia University set the tuition rate at $975 per credit hour.
This rate results in a full-time (30 credits per year) tuition cost of $29,250, an annual cost that is more than $13,000 below the annual price point of the average private, nonprofit law school. Student fees have also been eliminated for law students during the 2016 - 2017 academic year.
Eligible Idaho residents never pay more than $19,000 per year in tuition through a combination of our Idaho Resident Grant,* and our Transformation Through Service Grant of $15,000 ($5,000 per year for full-time students and $3,750 per year for part-time students). Students may also be eligible for additional scholarships.
The low cost of living in Boise, Idaho makes the estimated expenses for housing, transportation, food, books, and miscellaneous personal expenses during the academic year approximately $14,600.** We encourage all students to create a budget that will help keep costs down while attending law school in order to limit educational loan debt.

*The Idaho Resident Grant is not available to students who are admitted to Concordia University School of Law through a pre-admission program, such as the Admission by Performance (ABP) program.
**Estimated expenses are for a single student with no dependents. Average expenses subject to change based on the rate of inflation.

Part-time Law Students: All institutional scholarships (merit, grants, awards, etc.) are distributed to students over four years. If a student decides to change their status from part-time to full-time or full-time to part-time, their scholarship awards will be recalculated to match the time remaining to complete their law degree.
Transfer Students: All institutional scholarships awarded to a transfer student will be renewable based on the student’s class standing determined by the number of credits accepted by Concordia University School of Law, and as long as the student remains in good standing with the law school. For example, if a student transfers after their first year of law school their scholarships would be renewable for their two remaining years of study (for full-time students) or their three remaining years of study (for part-time students). Transfer students who enroll with third-year standing will receive their scholarships for one year (for full-time students) or two years (for part-time students). In the event that a transfer student requires additional time to complete their degree, the student may petition the financial aid office for an extension of their institutional scholarships.
Veterans: Concordia is a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon program. Read about applying for VA benefits, or contact a financial aid counselor to discuss available VA benefits and financial aid.
