Students may work with a Financial Aid Counselor to include the cost of the Bar Exam in their cost of attendance and to increase their federal student loans to cover the actual cost. Students will need to provide documentation showing payment for the exam during the last semester they are enrolled in law school.

Private bar loans are another option to assist in covering bar exam related expenses, but should be considered carefully as they must be repaid according to the terms set by the relevant lender and do not qualify for consolidation or any student loan repayment programs.
