Law Tuition Rate Degree Term & Continuing Registration

Law School tuition is based on a single rate for the entire law degree term. This may be different from what you have seen or experienced at other schools. Law school tuition is not charged on a semester, quarter, or course-by-course basis. Tuition for each degree program is bundled into one, low, economical rate that includes individualized curriculum design, course instruction, program mentor and administrative counseling, student manuals and text selections.

The Law School tuition rate does not include specialized law textbooks for the Juris Doctor (JD) or Corporate Executive Juris Doctor (CEJD) or Masters of Law (LLM) or Bachelor of Law (BSL) degree programs.  However, core Law textbooks are provided in the Juris Doctor Program (JD) Corporate Executive Juris Doctor (CEJD) Master of Laws (LLM) and the Bachelor of Law (BSL) can be obtained free of charge through the Novus Law School Lending Library.

The Law Degree Terms are as follows:

JD: Is either 3.5 Academic Years, (academic year constituting eight months) with one 4-month Semester Period/Academic Break off between each Academic Year. OR 24 months Accelerated Completion with no Semester Period/Academic Break off.

CEJD: Is either 2 Academic Years, (academic year constituting eight months) with one 4-month Semester Period/Academic Break off between each Academic Year. OR 16 months Accelerated Completion with no Semester Period/Academic Break off.

LLM: Is 1 Calendar Year, (calendar year consisting of 12 months) Semester Period/Academic Break not offered for this program.

BSL: Is 1 Calendar Year, (calendar year consisting of 12 months) Semester Period/Academic Break not offered for this program.

Students who are taking Semester Period/Academic Breaks of 4 months (semester) between years must notify the university 30 days prior to the 4 month (semester) off period and obtain a Academic Break form from the Student Services.

In no event shall more than 12 months of study be allowed for completion of any Masters of Laws (LLM) and Bachelors of Law (BSL) program unless pre-approved in writing.

In no event shall more than 16 months of study be allowed for completion of the Corporate Executive Juris Doctor program unless pre-approved in writing.

In no event shall more than 24 months of study be allowed for completion of the Juris Doctor program unless pre-approved in writing.

If a student's degree program has not been completed within the specified degree term, tuition is charged on a month-to-month basis in the amount of $325 per month until the degree program is completed or Official Withdrawal is received.

The continuous monthly tuition has been established to allow students the flexibility to complete remaining course requirements from month-to-month without incurring the total tuition cost of the degree program. The continuous monthly tuition is only allowed after degree term has expired.

Programs at Novus Law School are self-paced, with self-paced being defined as follows: (a) there is no classroom attendance required on a weekly or daily basis; (b) academic work can be submitted as personal and professional commitments allow. Programs are required to be completed with the degree term time limit.

Program Mentors may be able to predict the approximate amount of time that is necessary to complete the program, but in a self-paced program it is the student who decides when the program goals will be achieved.
