Summer 2020 Registration
Registration for Summer 2020 will open March 30. Your personal registration day and time based on credits earned will be posted on the Demographics page of your Student Account on March 25. If you don’t see a registration priority time, you may need to update either your student status or your end term by contacting email@example.com.
We are offering some courses on a “in person if feasible” basis, including our evening offerings of Constitutional Criminal Procedure and Family Law; our blended versions of Deals & Disputes and Immigration Law; and Law and the Business of Baseball. Our plan is to offer them on campus, but are prepared to shift to remote if needed for public health. If you register for any of these courses, you should be prepared to attend all classroom sessions on campus.
Some things to know before registering for Summer:
- The last day to add or drop Summer 2020 courses online is May 15.
- After May 15, students may still drop until the start of the course by completing a Request to Add/Withdraw Classes form and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar. Students who drop after May 15 and before the start of class will incur a $150 per credit penalty.
- Students may add until the start of the course using an Add/Withdraw form, space permitting, and if the student could reasonably complete any first-day assignments (including readings) by the start of the course.
- Please note that the Add/Withdraw request will not override holds, time conflicts, or credit maximums. Be sure you are able to take the course before submitting the form. Even if you add a class after May 15, you will owe the drop fee if you drop it.
- Students may not drop or add after the start of the course.
- Students who withdraw after the start of the course will owe full tuition.
Due to ABA standards and federal credit hour regulations: during summer, students may register for no more than 10 credits, and no more than 8 without prior permission from Vice Dean Kruse. Students who exceed this limit will be dropped from all courses. You may petition to exceed the 8 credit limit using the form found on the forms web page.
Wait list information
If you are placed on a wait list for a course, you will receive an email when a seat becomes available. To accept the seat, you will need to do the following:
- Drop any courses, if necessary, which create a time conflict with the course you are being offered a seat in,
- If you registered for an alternate section of the course you’d like to add, you must drop the alternate section first,
- Ensure you will not be registered for more than the maximum credits allowed per semester (3 credits in the J-term, 8 credits in summer, and 15 credits in the fall or spring semester) by accepting the offered seat,
- Verify you’ve met any applicable pre-requisites,
- Accept the seat by reply to the notification email before the date and time specified in the email.
- If you fail to reply before the deadline in the email, your place on the wait list will be forfeited and the available seat will be offered to the next student on the wait list. The course will be removed from your schedule, and will no longer be visible in your My Schedule page.
Most wait listed students are offered seats, so while we can’t guarantee anything, don’t rule out wait listed courses.
Fall 2020 Registration
Given the many unknowns about the spread of the virus, fall registration will be delayed. The school anticipates opening fall registration sometime after the spring finals period has ended.
