Applying for Financial Aid - Capital University Law School

Applying for Financial Aid

  • Attending law school is an important investment in your future.  Capital University Law School offers a variety of resources to assist you in financing your legal education.  We encourage students to apply early for financial aid so that our Financial Aid staff can work with you to identify and secure the best funding options.

    To apply for federal financial aid, all students should begin the process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Apply online.  

    Capital University Federal School Code: 003023 

    Note – there is not a unique code or branch ID for the Law School campus 

    Once your information has been processed by the Department of Education and received by Capital University, we will prepare a financial aid award package detailing your eligibility.  The process can take approximately 3 to 4 weeks, depending on the time of year you file.

    In order to receive loans, students must complete the Loan Request Form and submit it to the Financial Aid Office. All first time Direct Loan borrowers will also need to complete a Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling to obtain loan funds.

    Credit Information 
    The Federal Graduate PLUS Loan requires that applicants pass a credit check.  Students are encouraged to request a copy of their credit report prior to applying for a credit-based loan to ensure the accuracy of the information. Get a free copy of your credit report. 

    Please note that any loans borrowed will be reported to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), a secure federal website that houses all student aid information. This site may be accessed by authorized agencies, lenders and institutions.
