Financial Aid

Educational loans are our only form of financial assistance other than merit scholarships.  Students who wish to finance their legal education with educational loans must complete a FAFSA (W&L school code 003768) and direct that it be sent to Washington and Lee University.  The University's Office of Financial Aid will not begin work on your file until your FAFSA has been received.  Loan packages are typically mailed in mid-March.  Absent unique circumstances, admitted students are offered loans to meet the total cost of attendance at W&L Law.  Qualification for state and federal educational loans is determined by applicable regulations and by the availability of funds.  

For more specific information regarding the multiple steps in the educational loan application process, please consult the Financial Aid loan website. If you have additional questions not addressed by the web resources, please contact Cynthia Hintze, Senior Assistant Director of Financial Aid, at 540.458.8032 or
