    Financial and Cost Information


    Each year, the Law School offers a number of partial tuition scholarships to international students enrolled in the general LL.M.  degree program for foreign law graduates. Students seeking scholarship consideration should complete the financial aid application portion of our on-line LL.M. application. Our partial tuition scholarships are awarded to admitted LL.M. students on a competitive basis with consideration given to the applicants’ financial need and previous academic or professional achievement. The Law School has very limited international student scholarship funding and the requests for financial assistance always exceed our available resources. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer aid to every deserving applicant which is why students seeking scholarship aid are urged to no later than the March 15 application deadline for scholarship consideration. We award partial tuition scholarships to approximately six to eight students per year and these awards typically cover one-fourth to one-third of a student’s annual LL.M. student tuition.


    The 2014-2015 academic year tuition for the general LL.M. degree program is $24,828  or $12,414  per semester. Temple University students are expected to pay one-half of their academic year tuition each semester. The estimated academic year living expenses for single student is $14,500.  International students who will need a F-1 student visa for U.S. studies are required to submit financial documentation proving adequate financial resources to cover Temple tuition, fees and living expenses for one academic year.


    Temple’s LL.M. tuition rate is extremely reasonable in comparison the cost of similar law schools in the eastern U.S.  The Philadelphia’s cost of living is much more affordable than New York City or other cities located on the east coast such as Boston or Washington D.C. In the current economy, comparative costs matter to most law students.  It’s important to consider that Temple LL.M.  tuition is $24,828  versus the $59, 566 tuition at the University of Pennsylvania’s LL.M.. The cost living in Philadelphia is $14,500 versus $24,564 in New York City.
