Enrollment Requirements

Offers of admission are accompanied by an Intent to Enroll/Enrollment Fee Form and are time-limited. The time limit for returning the Intent to Enroll/Enrollment Fee Form will be noted on the form. Applicants who fail to timely submit the $200 non-refundable enrollment fee and the Intent to Enroll/Enrollment Fee Form by the deadline indicated forfeit their seat, resulting in the rescission of their offer of admission. Applicants are responsible for making certain that the Office of Admission has current address information at all times. The seat deposit must be paid by money order, cashier’s check, or certified check (no personal checks accepted).

All applicants who accept the Law School’s offer of admission must follow the following Enrollment Checklist:

Failure to submit all transcripts by this date can result in your admit decision being rescinded. Please note that the official transcripts from your Baccalaureate School need to show that your degree has been conferred.  Please note that the Managing Director’s Guidance Memo requires that no student may continue in an ABA approved law school unless their official transcript reflecting a degree is received by October 15th of the year of your enrollment.

  • The Online Insurance Waiver Form (optional) Students are required to have health insurance to attend a UNC system school. The University of North Carolina system has selected Student Blue, underwritten by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC), to offer as the Insurance Program for 2016-2017 beginning with the fall semester. Students with existing health insurance coverage can waive out of the school insurance plan. Students must enroll in or waive out of the coverage no later than September 10th. Visit Student Blue to start the process. Students that do not submit an approved waiver, and have not enrolled themselves in the program, will be enrolled automatically. Please be advised that if you wait to be enrolled by default, you will not receive your insurance card until late October.

Students who have existing family or individual coverage through another Blue Cross Blue Shield plan must complete the enrollment/wavier process as well. Students who are covered under a different health insurance plan are welcome to consider Student Blue.
