Financial Aid

Duke students should apply for loans through Duke Law's Office of Financial Aid. Students at other American law schools should consult the financial aid office at their own school. If a financial consortium agreement is required, financial aid officers are welcome to consult Duke Law School's Financial Aid Office for guidance. Non-American participants are encouraged to apply to foundations and other sources of funding in their home countries for scholarship assistance.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Duke Law School complies with the "Cancellation, Change, or Termination of Programs" as set forth in the American Bar Association's Criteria for Approval of Foreign Summer Programs.



Non-Duke and Duke Law School students may request official transcripts from Duke University at no extra charge by completing a transcript request form after grades have been reported (usually around mid-September). The grading system will be the same as that regularly used at Duke Law School. (Although no grade and no academic credit will be awarded for any course in which the participant has not taken the written examination, the notation "Audit" will be recorded for any course regularly attended by the participant.) Students who do not wish to receive academic credit for their courses are not required to take final examinations, but all students are encouraged to sit for at least two examinations.

Transfer Credits

American law students who achieve appropriate final examination results normally will be able to receive academic credit from their home institutions, and students from other institutions might also be able to obtain academic credit depending on the policies of their institution. Students are responsible for obtaining approval from their own law schools to transfer credit.
