*All Fall 2015 incoming law students must be covered by an adequate health insurance policy.  Those who are covered under an existing health insurance plan may waive the University sponsored student health insurance.  To waive, students are required to decline the University’s insurance plan and provide information on their existing plan by completing the form available at www.rwu.edu/go/insurance 

In January 2014, RWU Law unveiled its Affordable Excellence initiative which will reduce tuition by nearly 18 percent to $33,792 for incoming students beginning with the 2014-2015 academic year.  This tuition rate will be guaranteed, which means that tuition will be frozen for up to three years for all students who remain continuously enrolled full time.
