Seton Hall University has announced that it will extend its widely acclaimed merit-based tuition reduction program to its School of Law, reducing tuition by over 50% for eligible students. The tuition cuts for undergraduate students at Seton Hall University went into effect in 2012 and were recently extended for the 2013-14 academic year. The University will now extend the program further, offering “a private legal education at a public school price” to eligible incoming students at Seton Hall Law School, the only private law school in New Jersey. ...
For eligible incoming full-time first-year students, tuition at Seton Hall Law School will be reduced in the 2013-14 academic year [from $47,330] to $22,330. ...
- To qualify for this tuition discount, students must have an LSAT score of 158 and higher and an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher. ...
- The tuition credit is based on Rutgers Law-Newark 2012-2013 in-state tuition rate for full-time students ($22,746) and part-time students ($20,856 – up to 11 credits, flat fee).
- Students who matriculate under this program as incoming full-time students, will remain eligible for this tuition rate reduction for up to 3 years (6 semesters), provided that the student maintains a 2.80 cumulative GPA or remains in the top 75% of the class (whichever is more favorable to the student).
