Applicants admitted under the Regular Decision-Rolling Admission option must submit a non-refundable deposit of $250 by April 15, unless otherwise stated in the acceptance letter. A second $500 non-refundable deposit must then be submitted by May 15. These deposits will be credited toward fall trimester tuition.
Early Decision candidates agree that, if admitted to Elon Law under the Early Decision option, they will withdraw any pending applications to other law schools and not submit any additional applications. The accepted Early Decision candidate will submit a non-refundable deposit of $750 to Elon University within two weeks of admission. This deposit will be credited toward fall trimester tuition.
During the application phase, applicants will submit their post-secondary school transcripts to LSAC, and the School of Law will receive copies of these transcripts from LSAC. While this is sufficient for the application phase, accepted applicants must ensure LSAC has received a final and official transcript indicating the award of a bachelor’s degree prior to enrolling in Elon Law. If the applicant is a candidate for his or her undergraduate degree in May or June, he or she should wait to request the transcript until after receiving the degree. Generally, applicants must have received a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution prior to enrollment in the School of Law. In rare instances, the school may, consistent with ABA Standards, admit exceptionally well-qualified applicants who have successfully completed three-fourths of the work acceptable for a bachelor’s degree.
