Tuition and Costs

Students studying fewer than nine credits per semester are considered part time, and thus pay by credit. Students who are full time pay the fixed rate for the year. In addition to tuition, please also budget for living expenses in the Philadelphia area.

In June of each year the Temple University trustees establish the tuition rates for the academic year which begins in mid-August. The cost of education at Temple Law is very reasonable, especially considering the quality of education and the many opportunities available at Temple.

Financial Aid

Temple Law has a very limited amount of funding for LLM student financial aid. For this reason, aid is awarded to international LLM students on a competitive basis with consideration given to each applicant's prior academic performance and stated financial need. 

In a typical year, our limited funds only permit us to offer assistance in the form of partial tuition scholarships to approximately four or five international LLM students. These partial scholarships usually amount to less than one-half of the annual LLM tuition rate. Our restricted funding does not permit us to offer assistance to every deserving applicant. However, we believe Temple's LLM tuition is very reasonable in comparison to the tuition at many other law schools.

International students are advised to write to various employers, government agencies, foundations, and organizations within their own country to inquire whether any scholarship or grant aid is available for studying outside of their country. To assist in your search, visit our Scholarships and Grants pages.


If you are a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or have been granted political asylum and are interested in securing student loans through Temple, you may be eligible to borrow federal student loans through the U.S. Department of Education.   Students can apply for the federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans and/or the federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan online at: www.studentloans.gov.

Students who do not meet the citizenship requirement to receive federal student loans can apply for a private educational loan.  Many private educational loan lenders provide loans to foreign students with credit worthy co-signers who are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens. Information on private loans for international students is available on websites such as www.privatestudentloans.com or www.edupass.org. Students can also contact the Law School Financial Aid Office at 215-204-8943 for additional information.

*For U.S. permanent residents and citizens only (includes foreign nationals who are green card holders).
