There are a limited number of merit and need-based scholarships* available to MSL students. In order to be considered for a scholarship, please indicate on your MSL application that you are interested in financial aid. Applicants who are interested in scholarships will need to submit their applications by February 1st.
Full-time students and part-time students (U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents only) who are taking at least six credit hours a semester are eligible for the federal loan program, which includes the Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and Graduate PLUS Loans. MSL students applying for financial aid should submit the FAFSA and the UC Hastings Financial Aid Supplement form by March 1st. For additional information, please visit Financial Aid. All scholarship and financial aid decisions are made on an individual basis. UC Hastings will work with each admitted MSL student to craft a financial plan that is best for him or her.
* The purpose of our need-based scholarships is to provide access for students who demonstrate high financial need. Need-based scholarships off-set a portion of tuition and do not have to be repaid. Students who are eligible for assistance that covers full tuition, such as the Veteran’s Fee Waiver, Department of Veterans Affairs Rehabilitation, or the State of California Vocational Rehabilitation, are not eligible for need-based scholarships.
