Fee Waiver Application for J.D. Program

Per our fee waiver policy, waivers are granted solely on the basis of financial need or based on participation in certain federal programs, including Teach for America and AmeriCorps.  Fee waivers are also granted to those who serve or are veterans of the U.S. armed forces and students (current or former) of UofL, including members of the Harlan Scholars Program at the University of Louisville. Fee waivers are automatically granted to applicants that have received a waiver via LSAC for the year the waiver was granted. Eligibility for fee waivers based on financial need will be determined by the federal poverty guidelines. Additional information regarding these guidelines may be found at the following website: http://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty/14poverty.cfm.

For those individuals in certain federal programs, or are members (or former members) of the U.S. armed forces, or students (or former students) of UofL including members of the Harlan Scholars Program, simply complete the first and last sections of the fee waiver form.
