Cost of living ( $)

Estimated living expenses are $15,630 per year for lodging, food, etc., for a single LL.M. student. 

Living costs in Columbia in 2018 were 7.1 percent below the U.S. national average according to the ACCRA Cost of Living Index provided by the Council for Community and Economic Research.

The on-campus LL.M. Program does offer one- or two-semester fellowship awards that can include a waiver of the non-resident portion of tuition.

With such a fellowship, international students pay the resident tuition amount minus the amount of the fellowship award.

Currently, there are no fellowships or scholarships for part-time or online students. The Law School typically does not offer graduate teaching or graduate research assistantships.
