Admissions Criteria

Candidates for the LL.M. in Taxation and Business Programs must have a law degree and an academic record reflecting an ability to perform graduate work. The Graduate Admissions Committee of the Law School will review all applications for admission. The Committee will evaluate each candidate based on the likelihood of success in the program.

As the primary indicator of success in the program, the Committee will consider prior performance in academic and law school undertakings. However, the Committee will also take into account relevant practical experience. While the Law School does not usually require letters of recommendation and interviews for the Graduate Tax Program, the Committee may request them under appropriate circumstances.

Graduate Tuition

The current tuition rate  is $1,318 per credit hour ($5,272 per semester).  Tuition for in-state and out-of-state students is the same rate. Although the Law School does not offer other scholarships, students can take 5 semester hours which permits students to be 1/2 time and thus eligible for Federal Financial Aid. For information about this and other ways to fund your graduate education, click Federal Financial Aid. Certificate students and non-degree candidates are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid.
