Honors Scholarships for New Students
Earn a scholarship upon admission based on your Cooley Admissions Index or LSAT score or earn a scholarship based on your academic performance at Cooley.
Your scholarship stays with you
Unlike at many law schools, your Cooley scholarship stays with you throughout your enrollment, so long as you are not subject to sanction under the Honor Code or Disciplinary Procedures.
Earning an Honors Scholarship Upon Admission
Our program rewards entering students whose credentials demonstrate good potential for successful law study. Entering students can earn from 15-100% of tuition based on their Cooley Admission Index or on the LSAT.*
Honors Scholarship by LSAT Score
|LSAT Score||Honors Scholarship|

Transfer students can also qualify for an Honors Scholarship based upon their class rank at the school from which their transfer occurs.
Increasing the Honors Scholarship Award
Once enrolled, a student receiving an honors scholarship of less than 50% may increase the level of that scholarship through academic achievement in subsequent terms, based on the class ranking system.
The new, higher scholarship award is continued as a minimum award for the duration of the student's enrollment as long as the student is not subject to sanction under the Honor Code or Disciplinary Procedures.
* Applies to students matriculating in May 2014 or after. Students who matriculated in an earlier term are ineligible for this scholarship rate, even if they withdrew from classes before completion of a term.
