Checklist for Admitted JD Students

Congratulations on your admission to UNH Law!

The Admissions Team is here to guide you through the next critical steps in becoming a member of the UNH Law community and looks forward to welcoming you to campus.

Check this page regularly for updates and feel free to contact us with any questions.  Please review the checklist below for your upcoming events, deadlines, and requirements.

Pay Your Tuition Deposit

In order to secure your seat in the 2015 entering class, you are required to submit a nonrefundable tuition deposit. Please refer to your letter of admission for your deposit deadline.

The deposit will be applied toward your tuition upon enrollment. Pay online with EFT or a credit card; or, you may send a check or money order (made payable to UNH School of Law) to the Office of Admissions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We do not accept VISA credit cards; however, we do accept American Express, MasterCard, and Discover.

Complete Your FAFSA

U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents are eligible for federal financial aid. Your FAFSA will be used to determine your full financial aid package. The FAFSA is available online after January 1, 2015. Our school code is 002589, and the priority deadline is March 1.

Log in to WebCat to check your Financial Aid Status

Starting in mid-February, Admissions will provide secure website (WebCat) login access information by email. Check your inbox regularly for updates from Admissions.

International Students

International students must complete and return the International Applicant Financial Declaration.  Contact Christine Rousseau, International Student Advisor, at 603-513-5197 or christine.rousseau@law.unh.edu for advice and assistance.

Request an Official Transcript

The American Bar Association requires verification of completion of your Bachelor’s degree.

Prior to enrolling at UNH Law, the Registrar from your undergraduate degree granting institution must send the UNH Law Admissions Office an official copy of your final transcript which shows conferral of your Bachelor’s degree. (The transcript provided to us from LSAC’s CAS is a copy and not official.)

Your transcript should be sent to:

Office of Admissions
UNH School of Law
2 White Street
Concord, NH 03301

Mark your Calendar for Orientation

Orientation is mandatory and will be held on August 18-20, 2015. Check the orientation page throughout the summer for details.

Computer Specifications

We do not require students to have a laptop, but you will find life in law school to be much easier with one. Approximately 98% of our students type their exams, so having a laptop is nearly a must. Please review the computer requirements.

Housing

Student Services provides an UNH School of Law community password-protected current housing list online.  Also consult our Housing Guide.

Summer Prep

There is no required reading list; however, our Academic Success Program director has created an optional reading list to help you prepare for law school.

Registration

The Registrar will register incoming 1Ls for fall classes in late July. View the academic calendar.
