Tuition and Expenses

Tuition and Expenses

The Cost of Attendance (COA) covers the nine-month academic year, and includes educational expenses for the student, or basically the things you need to go to school and live, within reason. The COA is designed to be an accurate and modest but adequate projection of reasonable costs associated with attending Albany Law School. In other words, the COA does not allow a lifestyle of luxury.

Individual adjustments may be made on a case-by-case basis, based on documented extraordinary circumstances and within federal regulation. Consumer debt such as credit card or car payments cannot be included under any circumstances.

The school awarded $7 million last year. More than 60 percent of first-year students received merit scholarships.

A one-time documented rental or purchase of a computer can be added to the COA, up to $1,500. The computer allowance includes hardware only, no software, accessories or extended warranty.  The date of the rental or purchase must be within the current academic year. The documentation for funding must be either a store estimate or receipt for purchase and must include the student’s name as purchaser. If you use a store estimate, the actual receipt must be provided following purchase.
