Private legal education at a public university cost
ONU Law has become a true leader in affordability and is proud to announce a 25% reduction in tuition rates for the 2014-15 academic year. We were recently named one of 2014's "Best Value Law Schools" by the National Jurist. To ONU, value means more than just a low sticker price. It means receiving a strong return on investment. At ONU Law, our outcomes speak for themselves. We are No. 1 in Ohio for full-time, JD-required job placement for the Class of 2013. We are No. 1 in Ohio for overall bar passage on the February 2014 bar exam. We were noted as one of 2014's top law schools for experiential learning and practical experience by preLaw Magazine. And we do all this while maintaining one of the lowest student-to-faculty ratios of 11:1, providing extensive academic support programs, and fostering an extraordinarily close-knit and collaborative student environment.
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
- Named a "Best Value Law School" by the National Jurist in 2014
- Consistently strong first-time and overall bar passage rates
- No. 1 in Ohio rating for full-time bar-required job placement, Class of 2013
- 11:1 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, 2014
- 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.
