Scholarships & Benefits
John E. Ryan Merit Scholarship
Each year we award the John E. Ryan Merit-based Scholarship, in honor of the late Dean, to incoming students who exemplify his passion for education and the law profession. Current recipients retain the scholarship as long as they remain in the top one-third of their class at the end of each academic year. Beginning with the 2013-2014 entering class, recipients will retain the scholarship as long as they maintain a 2.90 cumulative GPA at the end of the academic year. For full-time students, the academic year ends after the spring semester. The academic year ends after the summer semester for part-time students.
Relocation Tuition Credit
The relocation tuition credit is designed to assist students with the costs associated with moving to Savannah. To apply, complete the application and submit it to the Office of Admissions by July 15, 2013. To be eligible, an entering student must be relocating to Savannah from a distance of more than 100 miles away. Distance is determined by your residency at the time of acceptance. Once verified, students will receive a one-time credit in the amount of $1,000 applied towards the fall term tuition in which they begin study.
