Attending law school is a decision to commit time and resources toward a career. Chase understands that even with the region’s lowest in-state tuition and one of the lowest out-of-state tuitions, some students will need financial assistance. Chase is committed to assisting students who are likely to excel in studies to become a lawyer or who will contribute to the diversity of the profession.
To help students plan budgets to attend Chase, the Northern Kentucky University Office of Student Financial Assistance provides these tables that include tuition, fees, and other expenses determined by the university, but not parking fees, and an estimate of primary living expenses students might encounter.

Your application for admission is also your scholarship application. You do not need to submit a separate scholarship application. All applications are reviewed for scholarship eligibility.
Achievement is a factor in each of the three types of scholarships available:
Salmon P. Chase Merit Scholars are selected on the basis of LSAT score and prior academic performance, and receive full-tuition scholarships and priority consideration for research assistantships during their second and third years at Chase.
Henry Clay Merit Scholars are selected on the basis of LSAT score and prior academic performance, and receive annual awards of $5,000 to $20,000
John Marshall Harlan Diversity Scholarship recipients have included an explanation of diversity with their admission application along with a strong record of achievement, and receive annual awards of $3,000 to full tuition.
CONDITIONAL SCHOLARSHIP DATA DISCLOSURE
The American Bar Association defines a conditional scholarship as “…any financial award, the retention of which is dependent upon the student maintaining a minimum grade point average or class standing, other than that ordinarily required to remain in good academic standing.”
ACADEMIC STANDARDS REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN MERIT SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
A student receiving merit-based scholarships must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.333 at the end of the spring semester of the student’s first year of study to retain the scholarship award. Thereafter, the student must maintain at least a cumulative GPA of 2.333 as determined after each fall and spring semester to retain his or her merit scholarship. Failure to maintain the required GPA will result in permanent revocation of the merit scholarship.
