Resources for Prospective Students

The NIU College of Law Office of Admissions & Financial Aid invites you to explore your options at NIU College of Law. Our mission is to help you attain your goal of an affordable, quality legal education.

The admissions staff assists and counsels prospective students not only on the particulars of the admissions process, but also on scholarships, loans, residency requirements, and housing. In addition to the full-time staff, the NIU College of Law Office of Admissions & Financial Aid has current law students serving as graduate assistants. They are available to speak with prospective students about student life and about the rigors and excitement of law school.  We hope you enjoy your visit to our website, and we hope to see you on campus!
