Auditing Students Application Information


The Law School welcomes students from a variety of academic backgrounds seeking to audit a limited number of courses. Students with a college degree equal to an Associate or Bachelor degree and students who have earned a law degree equivalent to either a JD, LLB, LLM, MSL, or JSD, may apply.

Application Process

The School of Law admits auditing students in the Spring, Summer and Fall terms each year. The deadline to submit an application accompanied by the required documents for each term is listed below. Incomplete applications and applications received after the term deadline may not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. If admitted, a non-refundable seat deposit is required to enroll. 

Applicants must demonstrate through prior study and/or experience that they have the ability, knowledge, and motivation to benefit from their enrollment in the course and to contribute favorably to the quality of other students’ learning in the course.

Admitted applicants must have sufficient qualifications to ensure that their presence in the course will not be a detriment to students enrolled in the course as part of their degree program.  Auditing opportunities may be limited based on course type and enrollment of degree-seeking students. Auditing students will be charged tuition but will not earn units for the course, and are not considered enrolled in a degree program nor eligible for financial aid.
