Full Ride and Seat Deposit

Postby lostlawman » Mon Feb 13, 2012 12:56 am

When you select a law school you must make a seat deposit that applies towards your tuition. If you get a full ride that covers 100% of tuition, does that mean you get reimbursed for the deposit you make?

Does your full ride also cover fees?

"Tuition is defined as tuition and fees assessed for registration of courses takes to toward completion of degree."
So if it does include fees, do I somehow get reimbursed?

Probably the person to ask would be someone in the admissions or financial aid office at the school.

I got a full ride at Elon and called them and asked a similar question...im not sure about the specifics of your scholarship but my scholarship is a full ride my first year and then i have to pay the difference the following two years. they told me i still had to pay my seat deposit and it would be used as a credit towards the difference my second and third years

your school may be totally different but hope this helps!

I've got one full ride as well, and the seat deposit will be refunded should I attend.

I also got a "full ride" however it did not cover the $1,000 of fees per semester. My seat deposit was applied to this balance.

+1 Same here

My full rides include only tuition, so the deposit is applied towards fees.
