Transfer Credits

The Student Records Office (SRO) emails all incoming transfer students individually in early July to notify of graduation requirements, the credits that will transfer for the individual and the degree requirements remaining for the individual. 

Course Enrollment

Incoming transfer students will access LawReg (via the Law School’s intranet system, LawWeb) between Aug. 10 at noon and Aug. 12 at 11:59 p.m. (EST) to submit a prioritized list of up to 20 Fall 2015 courses. Shortly thereafter, SRO will email students individually to notify of courses obtained (up to 16 credits). Seats are reserved in nearly all Fall courses for incoming transfer students. Course evaluations can be found on LawWeb.

Incoming transfer students will then have the opportunity along with all other upper-level law students to refine their Fall schedules during ADD/DROP between Aug. 15 at noon and Sept. 2 at 4 p.m. (EST).  ADD/DROP is done in the University’s Student Information System (SIS). Instructions for using SIS to add, drop or waitlist courses can be found on LawWeb, and SRO staff are available to help and answer questions too.

SRO will email incoming transfer students above the above enrollment processes as the date nears, but students can read and learn about all of these processes/deadlines on LawWeb (or by contacting or stopping by SRO).

Fall Finals Period

At the end of the Fall semester, classes end on Wednesday, Dec. 2.  Reading Days occur from Dec. 3-4, and a Finals Period occurs from Dec. 5-17. (Exam Schedule) Also, unless an earlier deadline has been established and posted, all final papers (including Independent Research due at the end of the semester) must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. (EST) on the last day of the Finals period.
