JD Requirements to Enroll

Admitted students must complete the following requirements before enrolling:

  • Seat Deposits. Admitted students can other submit two $250.00 deposits, called your First and Second Deposits, or you can submit a one time reduced $350.00 first-choice seat deposit deadline by April 1. These deposits reserve your place in the entering class and will later be applied as partial payment of your fall semester tuition. Deposit deadline dates can be found in your acceptance packet. You can confirm your enrollment and pay your seat deposits online in your admit portal.  If you have any questions, please email
  • Enrollment Confirmation Form. In addition to the acceptance deposit(s), the online confirmation form must be completed in order to confirm your enrollment for the Fall term. This form is also used by the university to determine your initial status for state residency and student financial aid. You will receive instructions via email for accessing the confirmation form prior to your deposit deadline.
  • Final Transcript to the College of Law. One official, final transcript from the institution that awarded your bachelor’s degree must also be sent directly to the College of Law. This transcript must show your final grades and the date your bachelor’s degree was conferred. Original transcripts must be mailed directly by the institution’s registrar to the address below in a sealed envelope with seal intact.

Prior to enrolling in August, you will receive information regarding books and materials you must purchase over the summer. Please contact the Office of Admissions if you do not receive this notification by July 25.
