Attend an Admitted Student Open House— All admitted students are encouraged to attend one of two spring Admitted Student Open Houses. These will be offered on Friday, March 3 and Friday, April 7. Register at https://law.uc.edu/Forms/admitopenhouse.html. If you are unable to attend an Open House, we invite you to schedule an individual visit to the College of Law. These visits can include a meeting with an admissions representative, building tour with a student ambassador, and first-year class observation. You can schedule a visit at law.uc.edu/visit.
Submit Your Enrollment Deposits— To reserve your seat and scholarship in the entering class, you must submit two non-refundable $250 enrollment deposits. These deposits will be applied as partial payment of your fall semester tuition. Deposits can be paid electronically. Deposit deadline dates can be found in your acceptance letter. Instructions for online payment will be located in your Admit Portal and also emailed to you in advance of your enrollment deadline.
Submit Your Enrollment Confirmation Form— In addition to your enrollment deposits, you must submit the online enrollment confirmation form to confirm your enrollment for the Fall term. This form is also used by the University to determine your residency status for tuition purposes and federal student financial aid. You will receive instructions via email for accessing the confirmation form prior to your deposit deadline.
Send Your Final Transcript to the College of Law— One official, final, paper or e-transcript from the institution that awarded your bachelor’s degree must also be sent directly to the College of Law. The transcript must show your final grades and the date your bachelor’s degree was conferred. Original transcripts must be emailed to
firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed directly via USPS from the institution’s registrar to the address below in a sealed envelope with the seal intact. The transcript submitted with your Cincinnati Law application does not satisfy this requirement.

3+3 Student Final Transcripts— Students admitted into one of the College of Law’s 3+3 programs under an approved University of Cincinnati undergraduate major will receive their bachelor’s degree after completing the first year of law school. In lieu of the final, official University of Cincinnati transcript, a signed 3+3 certificate from your college must be on file with the College of Law Admissions Office by July 15.
Join the Cincinnati Law Class of 2026 Groups on Social Media— All newly admitted students are highly encouraged to join the Cincinnati Law Class of 2026 Facebook group and GroupMe. These groups will be utilized to provide updates and reminders and will serve as a common ground for you to introduce yourselves to one another, find roommates, organize meetups, and so much more.
