Application Instructions for Visiting Admission
The Deadline for Visiting Student Applications is July 1, 2013.
The Visiting Student Application for Admission consists of the Application form and required attachments, as well as the Residency Affidavit. All forms must be completed fully according to their accompanying directions. All documents must be submitted electronically.
1. Complete the Visitor Application for Admission fully. All applicants should submit each required document with the application as an electronic attachment. All essays and documents submitted for consideration must be properly numbered and have the applicant’s name and LSAC account number at the top of each page.
a) Applications must include a direct response to question 14. Visiting student applicants must address in 250 words or less, why you wish to visit to the University of Connecticut School of Law.
b) Applicants are required to submit a complete resume including military service and summer employment. All resumes must be current up to the date of the application.
c) Applicants must provide a listing of every college and university, graduate and professional school attended (including law school), whether or not credit was received, including the dates of attendance, major, degree and date degree was awarded.
2. Complete the Residency Affidavit and return it with your application. All applicants, regardless of state of permanent residency, are required to submit the Residency Affidavit.
3. The $60 application fee is nonrefundable. If you received a fee waiver from LSAC please send a copy of that waiver to the admissions office.
4. Obtain a Letter of Good Standing from the Dean of your current law school. Please obtain the letter after you have completed your Spring semester. The letter should grant permission to visit with specific semesters identified, indicate the number of credits the student is authorized to take (note: this number cannot exceed 32), and that credit for specific courses will be transferable. Please have your law school mail the letter directly to the UCONN Law Admissions Office.
5. Obtain an official transcript from your current law school showing all grades (including summer grades) and your class rank. We require a current class rank for all applicants. If your law school does not rank, we require a letter from the registrar stating that your school does not rank. Please have your law school mail the transcript directly to the UCONN Law Admissions Office.
6. No letters of recommendation are required.
7. All applications and required forms must be certified electronically by the applicant. Applicants should try to submit all application materials at the same time. Applicants have an ongoing obligation to notify the Admissions Office of any changes in information or address not noted in the application.
8. Visiting student applications may be submitted on or after May 1, 2013 and must be submitted electronically no later than July 1, 2013. All deadlines must be met by admitted transfer applicants to preserve their offers of admission. The School of Law reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission if the admission decision was based on incomplete or inaccurate information furnished by the applicant.
