MSL Program Costs

The Master in the Study of Law (MSL) degree is a graduate program under the auspices of the university’s Graduate School. For more information please visit the Graduate and Professional Admissions’ Master in the Study of Law program page.

For a breakdown of tuition and fees per credit hour, please see the Registrar’s Tuition and Fees table. To calculate the total cost of the MSL program, please note that you need to multiply the “Instructional Fee per Credit Hour” under the Master in the Study of Law (Programs) times 30, since the MSL degree requires 30 credits. Those completing the program on a full-time basis will pay a maximum of 8 credits per semester (whether they take 8 or more). Those completing the program on a part-time basis (less than 8 credits per semester) will pay for individual credits each semester until they complete 30 credits. Those who do not qualify for in-state tuition have to add the “Non-Resident Surcharge Per Credit Hour”, also located on the Registrar’s Tuition and Fees table.

The OSU Moritz College of Law does not provide scholarships or financial support for MSL students in the form of assistantships or fellowships. Please see the Student Financial Aid website for available funding options.

Students who are simultaneously pursuing two degrees (dual degree), are assessed the higher of the two fees for each semester that the student is enrolled in both programs. Graduate students who are appointed as a Graduate Associate for 50 percent FTE, will receive a fee authorization that covers the general and instructional fees. For additional information, please review section IX of the Graduate School Handbook.

OSU Faculty and Staff may qualify for tuition assistance and support through the Faculty and Staff Tuition Assistance Program.
