Joint Degree Students
Penn Law subsidizes the cost of joint degree and certificate programs by paying tuition to its sister schools for up to four (4) non-law courses for each JD candidate. The certificate and/or joint degree candidate is responsible for an administrative fee, set annually with tuition, that covers the advising and facilitating with regard to cross-curricular planning and interfacing with sister schools. If a student pursues more than one certificate, or a joint degree and a certificate, a separate fee will be incurred for each.
Pursuing a joint degree may also have an impact on how your financial aid award is structured. In some cases, grants and scholarships can be reduced based on enrollment and program changes. Before pursuing a joint degree, it is important that you consult with a financial aid counselor about your specific program of interest.
