Financing Your Education

Financial Aid Office at Pace Law

The Financial Aid Office at Pace Law

The Financial Aid Office assists students in receiving a comprehensive financial aid package that includes a combination of need-based aid and merit-based awards. We are here to help make law school affordable; Pace Law strives to help make law school possible for every student accepted to our degree programs, whatever their current financial circumstances. Pace Law feels a responsibility to assist students with financial need as much as possible. We also recognize students with superior academic achievement. Most JD students receive a comprehensive financial aid package that includes a combination of need-based aid and merit-based awards. Students who are accepted to Pace Law are automatically considered for a number of Pace-sponsored scholarships. However, additional steps are required to secure aid from other sources. Financial aid based on either merit or financial need is available to students matriculated at Pace Law from a variety of sources, including Pace University, the federal and state government, and private sources, in the form of scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans. Our Financial Aid 101 page is designed to help give you a comprehensive overview of your financial aid options and general tips on how to apply.

Apply for Financial Aid

  • How to Apply for Aid

    All US citizens and permanent residents applying for need-based aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by November 15th prior to the year in which you intend to enroll. The FAFSA form can be found online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. FAFSA results will determine your eligibility for Federal loans, as well as the Federal Work-Study Program. You may be asked to submit additional information, usually your most recent income tax transcript or a verification form provided by Pace’s Financial Aid Office. Males under the age of 26 are required to register with Selective Service System in order to be eligible for Federal aid. You may sign up or check your registration status at www.sss.gov. To apply for financial aid from the Federal Government or need-based aid from Pace University, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. You can apply online starting October 1st each year at www.fafsa.gov. The FAFSA school code for Pace Law School is 002727.
