2014-15 Tuition and Fees

$30,586 (estimated Oregon resident tuition)

Beginning in Fall 2014, with the Class of 2017, the University of Oregon will provide a comprehensive bar preparation course to each of its graduating students. The cost of this course is included in the fees described below. 

The first third of your tuition will be due September 1. The second third of your tuition is due October 1, and the last third of your tuition is due November 1.

Law students are classified as graduate students.

Payment of mandatory fees entitles students who are enrolled for academic credit to all of the services the university offers its students including the recreation center, the health center, and the library system. In addition, law students have access to a dedicated student lounge, individual lockers, the law library, and complete technology support at the Knight Law Center.

Tuition and fee schedules are subject to revision each summer by the Oregon State Board of Higher Education, and final determination on the amounts is available at that time. Estimated tuition figures for 2014-15 can be found here: http://financialaid.uoregon.edu/cost_of_attendance_law.

Residency

You may apply for in-state tuition if you are in Oregon for other purposes than attending school and you have lived twelve continuous months or more in the state. Source of income, financial relationship to an Oregon resident, ownership of Oregon living quarters, tax and employment history, and purpose for being in Oregon are all taken into consideration. Other rules may apply to Oregon Native Americans, military personnel, state employees, and applicants whose parents are Oregon residents.

It is difficult for students who apply to the University of Oregon as nonresidents to establish residency during their student years.

Exemption

Oregon University System (OUS) employees are not eligible to receive staff rates for tuition at the University of Oregon School of Law. The law school J.D. Program, as well as the Master's in Conflict Resolution and LL.M. in Environmental and Natural Resources Law, are University of Oregon programs that are excluded from the OUS staff tuition rates benefit.

Tuition Payment.

Tuition assessments as of the billing date are included on a monthly statement of account and sent to your permanent mailing address. After you register, statements may be sent to your local address.

If you are paying out-of-pocket, you may pay full tuition at the time of billing, or you may establish a revolving account during registration that will allow you to pay each semester's charges in three monthly installments. The revolving account carries a $5 monthly billing charge and a 9 percent annual percentage rate. Due dates for fall tuition payments are September 1, October 1, and November 1. If you are receiving financial aid, your full tuition and fees will be deducted from your financial aid award at the time of registration.

More student account information is available from the business office at (541) 346-1119.

Tuition Refunds.

If you completely withdraw from the law school or reduce your course load below 9 credits, you may be entitled to a tuition refund. Refunds are based on assessed tuition and class fees, and are calculated from the date you officially drop a class or reduce credits, not the date of your last class attendance. No part of the admissions $600 seat deposit is refundable.
