College of Law

International Students

Standard J.D. Program for International Students who do not hold a Foreign Law Degree

Admission Application

Students living outside the United States should apply online through the Law School Admission Council. Toledo Law does not require an application fee to apply.

LSAT & LSAC Credential Assembly Service

All JD program students are required to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and register for the Law School Admission Council Credential Assembly Service (CAS).


The LSAC Credential Assembly Service will complete a transcript and credential evaluation for all foreign-educated applicants.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

Non-U.S. citizens are not eligible for financial aid from the U.S. federal government. Some private lenders may provide loans if the student has a sponsor in the United States who is willing to sign the loan for the student.

All applicants are eligible for merit-based scholarships from Toledo Law. You need not apply for a scholarship; your file will be concurrently reviewed for admission and scholarship awards. You will be notified by mail if a scholarship has been awarded. Scholarships cover instructional costs, but do not cover living expenses, books, or miscellaneous expenses

Financial Support

After admission, you are required to provide an original letter of financial support from your sponsor's bank or an original letter of financial support from your scholarship organization. This letter must be dated within six months of enrollment. 

If you have a Green Card, we do not need a sponsor letter.

If your spouse or child will stay with you in the U.S. while you complete your studies, your financial support evidence should indicate additional support for your spouse of $3,000.00 (yearly), and $2,000.00 (yearly) for each child.
