Whittier Law, like many other law schools, uses a standard single budget for the cost of attendance which applies to all students. For the purpose of aid verification, the cost of attendance is normally based on a nine-month period for fall and spring semesters. The cost of attendance for the academic year 2012-13 is shown below:
|Fall & Spring||Full-Time||Part-Time|
|Tuition and Fees||$ 40,310||$ 26,890|
|Personal Expenses||$ 3,616||$ 3,616|
|Room and Board||$ 16,156||$ 16,156|
|Transportation||$ 3,358||$ 3,358|
|Health Care Insurance||$ 2,120||$ 2,120|
|Cost of Attendance||$ 67,234||$ 53,814|
The cost of attendance for summer session is calculated separately as it involves multiple on-campus and abroad programs. Basically, a summer budget for each program includes tuition, application and/or program fees, housing, transportation/airfare, and a reasonable sum for miscellaneous expenses. Students are encouraged to check with the Office of Financial Aid for procedures and actual cost of attendance for summer.
The intersession or mini-session is a one- or two-week course/program between semesters when regular classes are not meeting. Therefore, the cost of attendance for the session is determined separately and financial aid award is counted as part of the regular spring semester. Students are encouraged to check with the Office of Financial Aid for procedures and restrictions on these programs.
The process of financial aid awarding is based on the computation of the FAFSA and cost of attendance each academic year. Need-based awards will be granted before those of non-need-based aid. Financial aid awards are given in the following descending order:
By regulations, all types of financial resources are included in the aid awarding process. Therefore, students receiving external aid (i.e. Veterans’ benefits, AmeriCorps benefits, Governor’s scholarships program, tuition reimbursement benefits, living allowances, etc.) are required to notify the Office of Financial Aid. Failure to do so will result in the adjustment and/or cancellation of financial aid awards.
