Law School Application Process for Nondegree Applicants
A lawyer or other professional who would like to increase his or her knowledge in highly specialized and rapidly changing fields of law may apply to law school for admission as a nondegree student for a maximum of 18 credit hours.
Accepted applicants who wish to enroll are expected to deposit and register for classes for the year in which they are accepted.
On a case-by-case basis, a student may be granted a maximum one-year deferment, which is generally due to a medical, financial, or unique family circumstance.
Students who apply for deferment must:
Individuals not granted deferment may reapply as a new applicant at a later time. Since the law school financial aid budget is established yearly, those students who have been granted deferment must reapply for financial aid for the year in which they plan to matriculate. Scholarships and/or awards granted previously by the law school may not necessarily apply. Deferred applicants are encouraged to reapply for financial aid concurrent with the abbreviated admissions application update.
A joint degree student who begins his/her studies at Regent in the other school is automatically granted a one-year deferment to the law school.
