Quality for In-State Tuition Rates after Six Months of Residency

At Washburn Law, you can establish residency and pay in-state tuition rates after living in Kansas for only six months.

Out-of-state residents will pay the nonresident rate until they establish residency in Kansas. Before students can be considered residents for tuition purposes, they must prove they have been legal residents or have continuously resided in Kansas for at least six months immediately prior to registration. 

You may also be comparing the cost of a law degree with the quality of education provided by the institution and its faculty. You can save over $10,500 by establishing residency in Kansas, when you choose the outstanding legal education in Washburn's collegial environment. You will also benefit from our low 9.6:1 student-to-faculty ratio.

When choosing a law school, it's important to select one that offers you hands-on training — one that will help you achieve success in life and in your future law career.

Currently, the resident rate for the 2013-2014 academic year is only $18,810.

"My decision to move from Washington, D.C., for law school was not an easy one but from my initial encounter with Washburn Law, I knew the law school community here would be warm and welcoming. The strong student friendships I’ve formed and the tremendous support of the professors have confirmed this is the best decision I have ever made."
