* Assumes a 2% increase in tuition and no increase in fees for 2014-2015. This rate will not be made official until sometime in the spring semester of 2014. The university administration has guaranteed an increase of no greater than 2% for 2014-2015.

** Full-time enrollment assumes 29 credit hours in the first year, and part-time enrollment assumes 23 credit hours in the first year (summer included). 88 credit hours are required for graduation.

*** 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.

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.
