Texas Wesleyan University School of Law offers a low tuition relative to other private law schools. The university works with individual students to provide the best financial aid package the student is eligible to receive. The financial aid package may include several types of assistance for financing a law school education, including scholarships, grants, employment opportunities, and loan programs. A majority of law students receive some form of financial assistance.
To apply for financial aid, applicants must complete and submit the following form:
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
The FAFSA is required to establish eligibility for federal loans and the Tuition Equalization Grant. File the FAFSA electronically on the web at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov
using your tax return information for the appropriate year. If you do not have web access, you may mail a completed FAFSA form to the federal processing center. FAFSA forms are also available in the Office of Financial Aid. This should be done as soon as possible after January 1. Do not send tax forms to the processing center. Please enter our Title IV Institutional Code, 003645
, on the FAFSA, so that we may obtain the report information electronically.
The FAFSA results – a Student Aid Report (SAR) – will be made available electronically to the student. Review the SAR for accuracy and further instructions. If corrections are needed, contact the financial aid office. If a student has authorized Texas Wesleyan to receive the information, the financial aid office should be sent an Institutional Student Information Record from the Department of Education.
Priority will be given to students who have the FAFSA results and any additional documents needed to determine their eligibility on file by April 1.
The FAFSA data is used for qualification for all need-based aid. Upon receipt of the FAFSA results, we will review each student’s financial aid application file. We will contact you if additional documents are needed.
Once a file is complete, the results of the FAFSA and other documents will be reviewed to determine eligibility for aid. An award notice will be mailed to a new student or made available online to continuing students. The student must read and follow the accompanying instructions carefully to accept award offers and put aid funds in place.
If a student is eligible to receive a Federal Stafford Loan, information will be provided with the award notice referring the student to the university website for further instructions on the loan application process. Loan processing may require two to three weeks after loan eligibility is determined.
Loan refunds are released to the student account after the start of the semester. First-time loan borrowers must complete a federally required loan entrance counseling session before release of funds. This is generally included as a step in the online loan activation process after receipt of the award notice.
Qualified personnel are also available to answer students’ questions during the new student orientation at the start of the fall semester.
Academic Progress Standards
Federal regulations require that students who wish to receive federal financial aid must maintain satisfactory academic progress as established by the institution. Information on the law school’s academic standards is available free of charge from the student services office.
