Course Requirements and Grading Policies

  • Please see course description for prerequisites.
  • All U.S. JD students must submit a letter of good standing from their home institution.
  • Students will be evaluated by means of a final examination or paper in each course. Grading standards are established by the school’s Academic Rules. See Student Handbook Academic Rules, (1.2 mb PDF)
  • All exams and the majority of class assignments that count toward your final grade are completed anonymously. Exam numbers are made available through the Registrar's Office. Your exam number may only be used for the summer semester. We recommend you make two copies of all papers and keep one copy for your records. The exam schedule is posted on the wall outside the Registrar's Office. If you have two exams scheduled on the same day, and would like to reschedule one of them, please submit an Exam Conflict Form to the Registrar’s Office
  • Students who want to earn academic credit must take the final exam. Those who do not want academic credit are not required to take the final exam. This decision must be put in writing and submitted to the Registrar’s Office prior to the start of the course. The student will receive an audit.
  • The TOEFL or IELTS is not required for admission for the institute, unless you are a non-native speaker of English, taking the course for credit and are requesting extra time on examinations. Such students must submit a current (not more than two years old) TOEFL or IELTS score, they also have the option to send a letter from their home school attesting to the score they have on file.  

Attendance Policy Rule II.D

Students are required to attend all classes on a regular and punctual basis and otherwise to meet all requirements for the offering as the instructor indicates by timely notice. Students are not allowed to receive academic credit for courses that are scheduled to meet at conflicting times, no matter how brief the conflict. It is the student's responsibility to make sure that such scheduling conflicts do not occur. If a student allows conflicting courses to remain on his/her schedule beyond the add/drop period, he/she will receive credit for only one of the conflicting courses.

It is the policy of the University of New Hampshire School of Law that all students will regularly and punctually attend class. It is the responsibility of each instructor to ensure compliance with this policy in whatever manner he/she considers appropriate under the circumstances of each course. Instructors will inform students in the syllabus of the manner of ensuring attendance at the beginning of each course.

Transcript Request Form

All non-UNH School of Law students who participate in the program are entitled to one free transcript, which will be sent to them once grades have closed and are posted. The transcript will be sent to the home address on file. Additional transcripts can be requested online from the UNH School of Law Registrar.

Acceptance of Credit

Acceptance of any credit or grade is subject to determination by the student's home law school. We advise you to check with your Dean on this matter. U.S. JD students must submit a letter of good standing from their home institution stating that the institution will accept the courses for JD credit.
