Students pay YLS JD tuition and fees in the first year; SOM tuition and fees in the second year; and SOM second-year tuition and YLS fees in the third year. Financial aid awards follow what students would receive were they enrolled in the individual degree programs, i.e., financial aid follows YLS policies in years 1 and 3 and SOM policies in year 2. Need-based loans originated through the Law School (program years 1 and 3) are eligible for the Law School’s Career Options Assistance Program (COAP). Need-based loans originated through SOM (program year 2) are eligible for SOM's Loan Forgiveness Support.
