Baylor Law Announces 0% Tuition Increase for Fourth Straight Year


Baylor Law will keep tuition costs flat for the fourth consecutive year. This decision is part of the school’s ongoing efforts to make legal education more accessible and affordable to students. The 0% tuition increase means that students will continue to pay $1,471 per course hour per quarter, the same rate since the 2018-19 academic year.

“For the past several years, we have been focused on raising endowment resources and other efforts to offer our students the opportunity to pursue a legal education without worrying about rising tuition costs,” said Baylor Law’s Dean Brad Toben. “At a time when inflation is impacting the cost of everything from food to vehicles, we’re pleased to keep tuition flat. We will continue to strive to make a Baylor Law education accessible to all students, regardless of their financial circumstances.”
