Awards of Up to 100% Tuition

At WMU-Cooley you can earn a 10-100% tuition scholarship that is applied to all 90 credits required for graduation as long as you are in good standing (not on probation).

Awards

Our scholarships are based on merit and are determined by analyzing your LSAT score and undergraduate grade-point average. We use a formula that predicts academic success from the academic performance of previously admitted students.

Scholarship Opportunities After Enrollment

Scholarship opportunities extend beyond those offered by admissions. Once enrolled, students may apply for additional scholarships AFTER classes begin.

Class-Rank Merit Scholarships

Students receiving a scholarship award 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 and is in good standing (not on probation).

Scholarship By Class Ranking*

Rank Scholarship
Top 5 percent 50%
Top 6-10 percent 40%
Top 11-15 percent 30%
Top 16-20 percent 20%
Top 21-25 percent 10%

*A student qualifying for both entering and class ranking merit scholarships will be awarded the higher of the two and will retain their highest scholarship amount for the duration of the student's enrollment so long as the student is not subject to sanction under the Honor Code or Disciplinary Procedures.

Transfer Students

Transfer students are eligible for incoming scholarships, with awards based on the highest of the two scholarship calculations. In addition, transfer students may also qualify for an Honors Scholarship based upon their class rank at the school from which their transfer occurs.
