JD Admissions

  • Enrollment Requirements
    In order to hold your seat in the Fall 2019 entering class, a non-refundable tuition deposit of $350 is required by 4 p.m. on April 15, 2019, or 3-4 weeks after your admission notice if you have been admitted April 1 or later. 
  • Orientation Information
    The task of preparing you for a successful and rigorous academic challenge begins with Orientation for new first year students.
  • First Year Class Schedule
    The requirement of 4-5 courses each semester for full time students, 3 courses each semester for part time day students,  and 4 courses each semester for part time evening students enables students to focus on fewer subjects more deeply and provides more study/ preparation time in the first year.  
  • Eligibility for Bar Admission
    In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the National Conference of Bar Examiners.
  • Important Dates
    Students should familiarize themselves with these important dates and subscribe to the Calendar.
  • New Student Visitor Program
