The University of St. Thomas School of Law is committed to making high quality legal education available to students by offering several forms of financial assistance, including scholarship, employment and loans. Financial assistance is designed to help students meet all education-related expenses, including not only tuition, but housing, meals and other living expenses.
UST School of Law imposes no restriction on employment, but we recommend that a full-time student work fewer than 20 hours per week. If you plan to work more than 20 hours a week, you should consider attending part time.
