Fixed rate Tuition for Maurer School of Law Students
This announcement comes after last month’s Board of Trustees decision for a two-year tuition freeze for incoming undergraduates.
However, this did not apply to nonresidents or graduate or professional programs.
The Maurer School of Law fixed-rate tuition means students will pay the same rate throughout their three years in Bloomington, according to an IU press release.
Tuition for current second- and third-year law students will also remain the same for the duration of their schooling, according to the release.
“Our goal is to ensure that going to a top school is within reach for talented students,” Dean and the James H. Rudy Professor of Law Austen L. Parrish said in the release. “You combine fixed-rate tuition with substantial scholarships and fellowships and the overall quality of our program — especially in areas like tax and business law, cybersecurity and intellectual property — an Indiana Law education is one of the best in the country.”
The current tuition for Indiana residents is $30,500 annually and $50,500 annually for out-of-state students, according to the release.
The Maurer School of Law offers a guaranteed minimum annual scholarship of $20,000 for Indiana residents under the Back Home Again program, according to the release.
The Back Home Again program is an attempt to level the playing field for nonresident students as well. If students do not qualify for state residency but have lived in Indiana for at least 10 years they are also eligible for the scholarship, according to the release.
“Students base their choice of law school on the highest quality education at the best possible value,” Greg Canada, assistant dean of admissions said. “Locking in their tuition will allow our incoming students to focus more on learning and developing intellectually, as well as interacting with their classmates, engaging with faculty and exploring the beautiful Bloomington campus rather than worrying about what next fall’s bursar bill will be.”
