JM Tuition

Annual tuition for the JM program is the same as that for the juris doctor program. Students who pursue the JM on a part-time basis will be charged tuition on a per credit-hour basis, in accordance with the number of enrolled credit hours.

JM tuition for the 2019-2020 academic year is $2,425 per credit hour, or $29,100 per semester.
