If you are planning to enroll in a course at Fordham Law, study abroad, transfer from the Evening to the Day Division, or accept an externship during the summer, you may be eligible for financial aid to help cover the cost of summer tuition, fees, books and living expenses. For federal student aid eligibility during the summer, students must be enrolled for at least 3 credits, be approved by the Law School Registrar or the Office of International and Non-J.D. Programs for the program of study, and have a valid 2013-2014 FAFSA on file. If you have not completed the FAFSA, please follow the steps indicated on the applying for aid section of our website.
Fordham’s Study Abroad Programs, Exchange, Externship, or summer course
Students registered for three or more credits in any of Fordham’s summer programs including Ghana, Ireland, Korea, Fordham’s Exchange, or an approved Fordham externship, are eligible to borrow a Federal Student Loan, or private loan, which will cover most of the program’s expenses. Once you have received approval from the Registrar’s Office to study through one of Fordham’s programs, complete a Summer Intent Form and return it to the Financial Aid Office.
- For students participating in a Fordham Exchange only: Before loan funds are disbursed, your enrollment must be confirmed with the approved exchange institution. To confirm your enrollment, the exchange institution must complete the Enrollment Certification form and return it to the Law School Financial Aid Office by fax or email.
Through an individual Consortium Agreement, students who have been granted permission to study for three or more credits outside of one of Fordham’s summer programs or exchange arrangements may qualify to borrow a Federal Student Loan or private loan to help cover education-related expenses. Before loan eligibility can be determined, the Financial Aid Office must receive a completed and signed Consortium Agreement between Fordham Law School and the Host Institution (the school at which you have been permitted to study for the term of enrollment).
