Scholarships & Financial Aid

Connecting you with the financial resources you need.

Your Creighton University School of Law education is an investment. In yourself. In your future. To pay for your education, Creighton School of Law will help you secure financial aid, including merit-based scholarships, and federal student loans, such as the Stafford and Grad-Plus loans.


To be eligible for a scholarship you must be enrolled in our full-time J.D. program or our Accelerated J.D. program. Part-time students are ineligible for scholarships. When you apply to Creighton University School of Law, you’re automatically considered for applicable law school scholarships. When you receive your acceptance letter from Creighton School of Law, you’ll also be notified of any scholarship awards. You can find a list of scholarships on the Financial Aid website.

Start with the FAFSA

The first step to securing financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may apply after January 1 prior to the August in which you plan to enter Creighton School of Law. Please use Creighton’s FAFSA School Code 002542 and designate that a report be sent to Creighton. Once we’ve received the report and notice of your acceptance to Creighton School of Law, the Financial Aid Office will send you an award letter, indicating scholarships granted and the amount of loan assistance you can apply to receive. You will then apply directly for loans.
