MSU Law has a PRIORITY DEADLINE of MARCH 1. Applying by this date puts applicants in the best possible position for a timely decision and scholarship consideration. Applicants who apply and are admitted after the priority deadline will continue to be reviewed for scholarships based on fund availability.

Things to Know

  1. MSU Law scholarships are merit-based, with review focused on your undergraduate GPA and LSAT score, as reported via the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC).  Personal statements and other application materials may also be used in the consideration process. 
  2. All admitted applicants are automatically considered for institutional scholarship aid. No separate application or FAFSA is required for consideration. However, submitting a FAFSA as soon as possible helps the Office of Financial Aid immensely for their process.
  3. Scholarship recipients are notified of their awards in their admission letters.
  4. Scholarships are automatically renewable for all three years of study as long as the recipient maintains good academic standing (cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above).
  5. Scholarship Award Terms change from year to year and the terms that govern a particular award are included in an admitted student’s official admissions packet. Note: Information related to scholarship increases, whether found online or in print form, based on first year academic performance do not apply to the 2018 incoming class or beyond.
