* Full-time enrollment assumes 30 credit hours in the first year (14 in the fall semester and 16 in the spring semester). Part-time enrollment assumes 18 credit hours in the first year (7 in the fall semester and 11 in the spring semester).

** Non-resident students pay the same tuition as resident students plus a $100 annual non-resident surcharge. This surcharge is waived for students who become Ohio residents. Students are typically able to become Ohio residents after one year of Ohio residency. See for details.

*** Summer classes are optional, but are strongly recommended for part-time students wishing to complete law school in four years. 88 credit hours are required for graduation.

Note that tuition has been frozen for the 2013 and 2014 entering classes. This means that tuition is guaranteed not to increase from orientation through graduation for students entering the JD program in 2013 and 2014.
