Interested in earning a J.D. but can’t attend school full time? At Creighton, you can attend classes with full-time students but take course loads suited to busy lifestyles. Courses are offered throughout the day during summer, fall, and spring semesters. You have up to six years to complete the requirements for graduation and you may elect to move into a full-time J.D. Program. Since many of the J.D. requirements are in specifically designated coursework; consultation with your Sr. Associate Dean for Academic Affairs or your academic adviser is a must for successful advancement toward a degree.
Part-time students are eligible for scholarships if they would qualify for scholarships as a full-time student. Students electing to take 5-7 academic credit hours in a semester are eligible to receive 25% of their annual full-time scholarship award. Students electing to take 8-9 academic credit hours in a semester are eligible to receive 37.5% of their annual full-time scholarship award. Students electing to take 10+ academic credit hours in a semester are considered full-time for financial aid purposes and will receive 50% of their annual full-time scholarship award.
