Cost of Attendance

LL.M.

 

The following chart outlines the cost of attendance (COA) for LL.M. students during one semester of the 2018-2019 nine-month academic year. For full-time LL.M. students completing the program in one fall/spring academic year, multiply the semester total by two for program cost. For part-time LL.M. students, multiply the number of credits per semester by the cost per credit below to determine the semester tuition charge and then add the semester living expenses for your total semester COA. For those attending during the summer semester, an additional COA chart is below outlining tuition and living expenses (based on 6 credit enrollment). Part-time LL.M. students typically complete their program over three semesters.

The COA is the maximum amount of financial aid permitted from all sources. Institutional funds awarded by AUWCL, in combination with tuition-only outside assistance, cannot exceed AUWCL tuition.

* Full-time students, including international student (for visa purposes), are automatically enrolled in the AU student health insurance. The charge in 2017-2018 is $1750 for the academic year and is not included in the standard COA. Students with alternate coverage may waive the AU student health insurance through the Student Health Center.

While the COA cannot be increased to meet non-educational obligations, documented extraordinary expenses and/or special needs may be considered per federal regulations. The COA can be increased for a one-time computer and/or related equipment purchase under specified conditions, as well as to cover the cost of AUWCL medical insurance (if required). A separate form is required through the AUWCL Office of Financial Aid for both the computer and medical reimbursements and are posted in the MyWCL portal.

The room allowance is based on shared accommodations. Part-time LL.M. students receive an adjusted transportation allowance since the Metro pass is not available. In compliance with federal regulations, AUWCL’s policy is to use an average of loan fees charges to all borrowers. Enrollment in six credits per semester is required for receipt of federal financial aid.

The COA for LL.M. students is adjusted based upon credit enrollment and the tuition charge is per credit.

AUWCL reserves the right to modify or change the contents of the cost of attendance without notice.
