Cost of Attendance

LL.M.

 

The cost of attendance (COA) for LL.M. students during one semester of the 2022-2023 nine-month academic year is located below. The non-billable charges below may be multiplied times two to determine living expense allocation over the entire 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 3 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.

Monthly living expenses: For the 2022-2023 (9-month academic year), students should budget approximately $2,475 per month for living expenses with approximately $1,725 of that allocated to rent and utilities. The total figure includes room (shared accommodations), board, and personal expenses.
