COVID-19 Campus Information for Prospects, Applicants, and Admits

The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid at Cincinnati Law would like to provide guidance to all individuals who are considering the College of Law as a place to pursue their legal studies. We encourage you to visit this page often for updates and announcements.

Please know the safety of our students, faculty, and staff is of upmost importance and COVID guidelines will continue to be closely monitored and followed.

Does Cincinnati Law plan to host classes on campus this fall?

Yes, the College of Law plans to return to in-person instruction for all 1L’s for the upcoming academic year. We continue to monitor recommendations by the CDC and state regarding masks and social distancing and will abide by stated policies and procedures. As we receive new information, we will continue to offer updates.

I am immunocompromised. Will a remote class option be available to me?

We plan to return to in-person instruction in the fall for all incoming 1L’s. Students who require ADA accommodations must submit the Accommodations Request Form.

Scholarship opportunities?

All students admitted to the College of Law are considered for merit scholarships upon acceptance. We continue to review and notify admits of any scholarship allocation simultaneously with admission to the College of Law. The College of Law offers more than $3million in awards to students each year.

When will I receive a Financial Aid Offer Letter?

Financial Aid packaging occurs on a rolling basis. Once the Office of Financial Aid receives your 2021-2022 FAFSA, your FA package will be processed. The package will contain additional information regarding next steps in the loan process.

If you have questions about financial aid, contact: Cassandra Jeter-Bailey, Assistant Dean of Admission & Financial Aid, at

Will the Coronavirus pandemic have any impact on the admissions process for prospective or current applicants?

The admissions process has not been affected by the impacts of the pandemic. Application timelines remain the same. To provide every opportunity for you to consider Cincinnati Law, our application is available for submission through July 15, 2021. 

We will accept LSAT scores from any administration of the LSAT through the June 2021 administration.  Please visit for current information about the administration of the LSAT and the other services provided by LSAC.

Will the decision timeline change or be adjusted this cycle?

No. As in a typical admissions cycle, the evaluation of applications and decisions will be issued within 2-4 weeks of completion. We will continue to notify applicants of their decisions via email.

Are there opportunities to visit the law school?

Through Summer 2021, the College of Law has suspended all in-person visits out of concern for all members of the law school community.

Though we are disappointed we cannot welcome you to campus at this time, we hope to connect with you in other ways.
