Students in LL.M. programs pay the same tuition and fees as J.D. students. Below is a breakdown of the estimated cost of attendance for the 2016-17 academic year (based on 24 credit hours):
Foreign nationals in certain eligible categories who have been legal residents of Florida for more than one year may qualify for in-state tuition, which currently is $16,514.32 for 24 credit hours.
Students on F-1 or J-1 visas do not qualify for in-state residency.
Students from Latin American and Caribbean countries may qualify for a $500 scholarship and in-state tuition.
The law school does not have other tuition waivers, but some limited scholarships may be available for foreign students. Applicants are also encouraged to seek financial assistance through their governments or other outside sources, including the Fulbright Program or the Organization of American States.
Certification of Financial Responsibility (For International Students Only)
Florida State University is required by U.S. federal regulations to verify the financial resources of each applicant prior to issuing the Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20 or DS-2019). Please complete the Certification of Financial Responsibility Form and submit it along with verification of support (bank statements, award letters, scholarships, etc.).
