The UHLC is unique in that it houses a financial aid advisor within the Law Center. The advisor services only law students and serves as an extension of the central campus financial aid department. Law students should correspond with the Law Center advisor so that your financial aid file is complete as this will assist with a more timely awarding of financial aid. The main campus financial aid office, located in room 120 of the Welcome Center, will assist you in the absence of the Law Center advisor.
All aid programs funded by federal and state government agencies, sponsoring individuals, or the College may be changed or eliminated at any time. All financial aid programs and awards are subject to the rules and regulations of the federal and state agencies, the University's Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA), and the Law Center.
Law students interested in applying for financial aid at the UHLC should meet the following criteria:
Effective October 1, 2016 students will now use prior-prior year (PPY) tax information on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students should begin the 2019-2020 financial aid process as soon as possible after October 1, 2018, even before admission to the UH Law Center.
Common Mistakes: Do not leave fields blank; Instead, put '0' or 'not applicable.' Be sure to list the correct Social Security or driver's license number; it pays to recheck these numbers. Be sure to apply using the name on your Social Security card, not a nickname.
The Law Center will receive the same SAR information electronically once you are accepted to the Law Center program, but no sooner than early February 2018. The university may require additional documentation to complete your financial aid file. If so, you will be notified via email if your file is incomplete, but it is also recommended that once notified of an assigned student ID, students should monitor their status/To Do List online at myUH.
