International Applicants

Foreign-Born Applicants

If English is NOT your first language, we require the results from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) are to be mailed directly to the law school on or before the application deadline.

An offer of admission from the Law School to international applicants is conditioned upon verification that, as an incoming international student, they are eligible to enroll in school, and can show evidence of their ability to satisfy their financial obligations associated with attending school.  International students are responsible for tuition, fees and associated costs of attendance. For further details, please read the Financial Statement of Eligibility (1-20) found on our website here, which will be required upon enrollment.

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

If you attended a foreign institution (not including a study abroad program through a domestic post-secondary institution): The law school recommends that your academic credentials be evaluated for baccalaureate equivalency and assessment of grade-point average through the World Education Service, Inc. (WES). Applicants must pay for the cost associated with having their foreign transcripts evaluated. The evaluation must be mailed directly to the law school by World Education Services, Inc. (WES) on or before the application deadline.

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.
