Financial Aid for Visiting Students

Capital University Law School does not generate financial aid awards for visiting students. If you plan to utilize financial aid to cover the cost of attendance, you must ask your financial aid office to mail or email a consortium agreement directly to Capital University Law School Office of Financial Aid. A financial aid officer will complete the Consortium Agreement by verifying the cost of attendance, dates of attendance, and enrollment status for the visiting term. Once the form is completed and returned, your home institution will send your funds directly to our Financial Aid Office to be applied toward your tuition charges.


In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant bar admission agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Applicants can also find detailed information in the Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements, published by the National Conference of Bar Examiners.  Acceptance by Capital University Law School does not guarantee certification by any state’s Board of Law Examiners.
