PWL Graduate Students Eligible to Take Free, Low-Cost Law Courses Through Concord Law School at Purdue University Global

Beginning January 2023, Purdue West Lafayette Graduate Students can enroll in elective law courses online through Purdue University Global’s Concord Law School. This opportunity allows graduate students to explore how law and regulations impact their area of study, and course credits gained through Concord Law School could potentially apply to their graduate degrees.    

Courses are 100% online, interactive, and taught by faculty at the forefront of online legal instruction. Many courses focus on specialized legal knowledge and skills, with the support of individualized feedback and guidance from faculty.

Purdue West Lafayette students enrolled in a graduate-level degree program may be able to apply Concord Law School credits to their degree plan of study with a variety of savings, including:

  • Concord’s standard $295 per term resource fee is waived
  • No out-of-pocket cost for full-time students on banded tuition (full-time flat rate) or Purdue West Lafayette fee remit (most assistantships)
  • 10% off per credit hour cost ($464 per credit instead of $515) for cash-pay or part-time students
  • Purdue employees can also apply their Gift of Knowledge benefit (50% off, or $232 per credit)
  • International students on F, M, and J visas are not eligible for this program.

To apply Concord Law School credits to their degree plan of study, the department graduate coordinator and major professor must approve selected Concord Law School course(s), and the student must sign a consortium agreement to have the selected course(s) applied to their degree program.

Students can learn more about this opportunity, by reviewing the linked documents, including information on adding Law Microcredentials, Concord Law Course Descriptions, and Elective Offerings.
