Visiting Student

A student from another ABA-approved law school may be granted visiting student status to attend classes at the School of Law for an academic term or year. A visiting student will be ineligible to receive a degree from NCCU School of Law. Native NCCU students have priority enrollment in classes of their choice and there is no guarantee that a visiting student will be able to register for specific courses. And please note that visiting students must adhere to the drop/add and grading deadlines for North Carolina Central University, which may not correspond to a visiting student’s home institution.

Visiting students are admitted as space allows.  A visiting student must submit a visiting student application (please use this PDF application) in order to be considered for admission, in addition to the following items:

  • A completed visiting student application;
  • A $50 application fee made payable to NCCU School of Law (cashier’s check, certified check, or money order) NO PERSONAL CHECKS;
  • A letter of good standing from the current law school stating that you have permission to visit and the conditions under which you will receive credit for the courses taken at NCCU School of Law;
  • An official transcript of all law school course work (it is a requirement to have completed 29 credit hours to be eligible to become a visiting student);
  • A Consortium Agreement from your current institution if they participate in the Consortium Agreement (optional)

The Admissions Office will not review the application file until the School of Law receives the law school transcripts and letter of good standing.

* Please note, visiting students must qualify for financial aid through their home institution and will not qualify for financial aid from North Carolina Central University.
