Tuition and Living Expenses
The University of Dayton School of Law charges tuition per credit hour rather than per academic year. The cost per credit hour for the 2013–14 academic year is $1,125.
To encourage you to devote your full attention to the rigors of the first year of law school, UDSL policy prohibits employment during the first year (with the exception of holiday and summer breaks). After your first year, you may pursue part-time employment to help with tuition and other costs.
