Student Loan Counseling

Students admitted receive an award notice which identifies any scholarship support provided by the Law School, a financial aid worksheet for students to assist students in planning their budget, and options to apply for loans where appropriate. To expand our financial literacy efforts, we have partnered with AccessLex to offer all students free access to the AccessLex MAX program which offers asynchronous webinars and modules related to financial decision-making. With each completed module students are automatically entered into a drawing for additional scholarships offered directly from AccessLex.

Additional Services Include:

  • Financial Aid Counseling - drop-in hours at the Law School
  • Online and in-person entrance and exit counseling 
  • AccessLex MAX Program - access to scholarship databank, building financial confidence through webinars and modules with topics related to financial decision making which are offered to students throughout the year
  • Access to BC Law’s Loan Repayment & Assistance Program
