First-year students should be prepared, once registered, to pay all charges for tuition, fees and room and board, if applicable. Upper-division students must pay all charges for tuition, fees and room and board, if applicable, as per the terms of the invoice issued by the University for each semester. A student who is in debt to the University at the end of any semester is not eligible to sit for examinations, attend any classes during the succeeding semester, register for the next academic year, or receive an official transcript until his/her indebtedness has been satisfied.
Duquesne University School of Law does not permit any student to graduate or participate in the graduation ceremony if the student's tuition debt has not been paid in full.
For those students who are financially unable to pay the full semester's charges in advance, the University offers a student financing program. Students desiring payment of their tuition and other charges for the semester by installments should contact the Financial Aid Office or the Student Accounts Office. Loan programs for law students are not administered by the Law School.
