Limited Debt Mindset

Minimize Academic Debt and Empower your Career

Glendale University College of Law is proud to have continually offered access to one of the most affordable, accredited law programs in Southern California.

Our hope is that earning a Juris Doctor at GUCL will provide graduates with the freedom, opportunity, and empowerment to make career and life choices based on fulfillment, rather than the necessity of servicing excessive academic debt.

GUCL is able to offer a reasonably priced Juris Doctor degree program for several reasons:

  • GUCL is institutionally stable
  • GUCL has conscientious and fiscally-sound management
  • GUCL seeks to maintain an educational opportunity that is financially accessible

Using GUCL's monthly payment plan, many students graduate with little to no academic debt. Our minimal debt mindset also supports students that do get loans by facilitating responsible borrowing practices.

Prospective law students rightly question whether graduating from law school with six-figure debt is a smart choice; many decide it's not. According to U.S. News & World Report's 2022 rankings, the average cost of a four-year law program at the nation's top schools will leave students with nearly $200,000 in debt upon graduation.
