Federal Loans

Beginning with the 2015-2016 academic year Brooklyn Law School instituted an across the board 15% tuition reduction. The tuition reduction is a significant step toward addressing the national challenge of making law school more affordable and accessible to qualified students. The tuition reduction also is part of a package of aid initiatives aimed at engaging a broader array of students by offering a wide variety of aid programs.

Students may borrow federal student loans for the academic year. Graduate Plus Loans are available for the summer if the student is enrolled in six credits or more.

To qualify for a federal student loan, the student must be:

  • Enrolled at least half-time (six credits or more)
  • A citizen or permanent resident of the United States
  • Making satisfactory academic progress if already enrolled in school
  • Not in default on a previous federal student loan

For males:

  • Males 18-25 must register with Selective Service
  • Males 26 and over who did not register with Selective Service are ineligible for aid
  • The Federal Unsubsidized Loan is available to eligible students regardless of financial need (based on the FAFSA).

    Students may borrow up to $20,500 in a Federal Unsubsidized Loan per year.

    As of July 1, 2016, the Federal Unsubsidized Loan has a fixed interest rate of 5.31%. 

    Students cannot exceed a maximum federal loan aggregate of $138,500. 

    This includes undergraduate loans. 

    Borrowers are responsible for all interest that accrues while in school. 

  • Students may be eligible to borrow Graduate Plus Loans up to the cost of attendance (less other aid).
