Visiting Student

A student from another ABA-approved law school may be granted visiting student status to take classes at the School of Law. A visiting student is ineligible to receive a degree from NCCU School of Law. NCCU Law students have priority registration and enrollment for courses, and there is no guarantee that a visiting student will be able to register for a specific course. Visiting students must adhere to the drop/add and grading deadlines published by North Carolina Central University which may not correspond to the dates of the 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 addition, a visiting student must also submit:

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

The Office of Admissions will not review your visiting student application until we receive your law school transcripts you’re your 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.
