Students from other US law schools who have been accepted as a visiting student at Western State (receiving their JD degree from their home institution), and who need financial aid to meet their educational costs, must arrange with their home institution for the processing of their financial aid. Please remember that Western State will not process any financial aid for the visiting student. The student’s home institution may forward the financial aid proceeds to our Financial Aid Office to be applied toward the student’s Western State tuition and fee charges or may send proceeds directly to the student. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at (714) 459-1119 to arrange for tuition payment and applicable deadlines.
