Empire College cares about our students. We understand that not everyone can easily pay for college. This is why we accept many forms of financial aid and assistance to help you in achieving your dreams.
Federal financial aid programs are administered by Empire College School of Law to students enrolled in the Master of Legal Studies program who are determined to be eligible and who maintain satisfactory academic progress. Eligibility for all financial aid programs is based upon a "Need Analysis" and/or prior academic performance. Currently, students enrolled in the Juris Doctor program are not eligible for federal financial aid programs. Private loan programs (outlined below) are available for Juris Doctor students.
