Policies and Procedures

Below is a list of all the topics on which you can find information on policies and procedures. The Policies and Procedures page is in the process of being updated. For questions about information not contained below, contact the Dean of Students Office at lawdos@umn.edu.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

The Director of Admissions (Room 290) is responsible for awarding scholarships and facilitating the financial aid process. Scholarship recipients must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year and continue to meet eligibility criteria.

Students receiving scholarships should familiarize themselves with the terms of their award (provided by the Admissions Office via offer letter), as well as with the University's general policies on award acceptance. Additional information regarding law school scholarships can be found on the Frequently Asked Questions about Scholarship Awards document.

The University's One Stop site has a wealth of information for students regarding Financial Aid - including Financial Aid Basics which offers a loan comparison chart for graduate and professional students, and information specific to Graduate Students. Questions about financial aid can be directed to the Law School’s financial aid liaison, Jim Parker in the Office of Student Finance, at j-park1@umn.edu.

Consortium Agreement

Students studying off campus may continue to have financial aid processed through the University of Minnesota. If students planning off-campus study wish to apply for financial aid, they should consult the Assistant Dean of Students Office about how to complete a Financial Aid Consortium Agreement. This document is completed by the student, Assistant Dean of Students at the Law School, and by a financial aid representative at the host institution. The consortium agreement is then forwarded to Jim Parker, the Law School’s financial aid liaison.
