Tuition and Living Costs
Loyola's nationally ranked LLM programs offer outstanding value. TThe tuition for PROLAW® is in line with that of our US-based LL.M. programs at $1,355 per credit hour. For academic year 2013-2014 the tuition will be US$ 36,585 for the full program.
Although computers are available on campus, students will find that having their own laptop with MS Office software and internet access will be indispensable for successful course work.
As campus accommodation is limited, PROLAW® students will find accommodation off campus with the help of our student services. Individual needs and choices will determine the budged required for living costs.
The following costs are estimates to complete the two semesters (eight months) in Rome. Actual costs may differ.

Additionally, admitted students will need to meet the costs of travel to Italy, the ECE and TOEFL application fees as well as any potential fees for an Italian study visa.
We are pleased to announce that four 50% tuition awards are currently available for the academic year of 2014-15 for exceptionally qualified students from OECD countries. In order to qualify, applicants are required to submit with their program applications a scholarship application letter detailing their financial needs.
Full and partial scholarships may be offered to further exceptionally qualified students, who are likely to excel in their studies, add to the diversity of our student body and who are likely to make a sustained impact on rule of law initiatives in developing countries through their work. However, applicants are encouraged to actively seek financial support from external sources such as their home countries, philanthropic organizations and employers since PROLAW has limited funds for scholarships.
