Private legal education at a public university cost
ONU Law is a leader in affordability and is proud to announce a 25% reduction in tuition rates for the 2014-15 academic year. ONU is a high value law school in Ohio and nationally recognized for its visionary curriculum. With tuition at just $24,800, a 92% three-year average Ohio bar passage rate for first-time takers, and a 2nd in the state ranking for JD-required job placement, ONU Law delivers incredible bang for your buck.
20-25 percent reduction in tuition rates
Beginning with the 2014-15 academic year, Ohio Northern University will reduce its tuition by 25% percent of its 2013-14 tuition rates across all colleges and academic majors.
For the College of Law, the 2014-15 tuition rate will be $24,800.
During these economic times, this will help ensure that a legal education remains within reach for students and families across the country.
Everything else about ONU Law remains the same
While our tuition reduction helps make a legal education more affordable, everything else about our program will remain the same.
As an ONU Law student, you will continue to have accessible faculty who inspire and support you, small class sizes that offer individual instruction, a diverse international network of students and alumni, and an innovative curriculum that melds theory with real-world experience to graduate practice-ready lawyers.
Further, our emphasis on exceptional outcomes remains evident
- Consistently strong first-time bar passage rates – with 100 percent passing in February 2013
- Second-in-Ohio rating for exceptional bar-required job placement
- 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio – one of the lowest in the country
- Innovative legal education with the lowest private law school tuition in the Midwest
- Top in the nation for practical experience and experiential learning - preLaw Magazine
- 45-year track record of providing high-impact, guaranteed clinical placements – almost 20 years before any other law school
What this means for current students
Current law students also will see the same reduction in tuition to $24,800. Many students – those with no scholarship or with a scholarship less than $8,926 per year – will see a net tuition decrease of up to $8,926 per year. Other students – those with a scholarship of $8,926 or more per year who maintain their academic requirement for their scholarship – will pay no more net tuition in 2014-15 than they did in 2013-14, because the tuition reduction will be offset by a commensurate reduction in their scholarship awards. All students will benefit, however, from the University’s pledge to not increase nominal tuition for the 2014-15 academic year.
