International Applicants

Foreign-Born Applicants

Foreign-born applicants must present evidence of their ability to speak, read and write the English language.  Results of the TOEFL examination (Test of English as a Foreign Language), if English is not the applicant’s first language, must be submitted with the Application for Admission directly to the Admissions Office at our law school.

An offer of admission from the Law School to a foreign-born applicant is conditioned upon verification that, as an incoming foreign-born student, they are eligible to enroll in school, and can show evidence of their ability to satisfy their financial obligations associated with attending school.

In addition to all other enrollment requirements, foreign-born applicants must submit all required documentation as applicable to the appropriate department of North Carolina Central University no later than the first day of orientation to show proof of eligibility to enroll in the School of Law.

Foreign-Educated Applicants

Foreign-Educated Applicants must have their academic credentials evaluated for baccalaureate equivalency and assessment of grade point average. Applicants who submit foreign transcripts must pay for the costs associated with having their foreign transcripts translated and/or evaluated by the World Education Service, Inc. (WES). The results must be sent directly to the Law School by the World Education Service, Inc. (WES).

Applicants with foreign academic credentials should check the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) website, to ascertain whether attendance at their undergraduate school requires them to register.

The School of Law begins accepting online applications on October 1st. Application materials submitted prior to October 1st will be returned to the sender. The application deadline for submitting all application materials is noted here: Application Deadline.
