The first step to securing financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may apply after October 1 prior to the August in which you plan to enter Creighton School of Law.  Please use Creighton’s FAFSA School Code 002542. Once we receive your FAFSA information and notice of your acceptance to Creighton School of Law, the Financial Aid Office will send you an email award notification, indicating scholarships granted and the amount of loan assistance you can apply to receive. You will then apply directly for loans.

Application Procedures

  • Apply for admission to Creighton's School of Law. No financial aid commitment can be made until a student is accepted for admission.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Creighton's school code is 002542.
  • Students will receive an award email notification with instructions to accept the aid offer on-line and complete the required promissory note(s). 

It is recommended that students complete the FAFSA by March 1 preceding the fall semester in which one plans to enroll.  However, no student will be considered for or granted financial aid until that student is accepted by the University for admission and/or is in good standing with the University.

Disbursement and Use of Awards

All financial aid advanced by Creighton University must be used to pay tuition, fees, and University board and room charges before any other direct or indirect educational costs.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Federal regulations require that students must be making satisfactory academic progress, as defined by the institution, to be eligible for federal financial aid. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is the successful completion of degree requirements within the maximum time frame allowed to earn the degree. The progress of each law student will be monitored at the conclusion of each academic year to determine that the student is making satisfactory academic progress. A law student must maintain a cumulative 1.85 GPA after the first year, and a 2.00 GPA thereafter.
