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.
In addition to submitting the enrollment deposits described above, all accepted applicants must submit an Enrollment Confirmation Form and scholarship agreement (if applicable).
Generally, applicants must have received a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution before enrolling in the School of Law. 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 documentation 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 before enrolling in Elon Law. An applicant who is a candidate for an undergraduate degree in May or June should wait to request the transcript until after receiving the degree. Per ABA Standards and Elon Law policies, an applicant must have received a Bachelor’s degree, and the Law School must receive a final, official transcript indicating the award of that degree, before the applicant’s enrollment at Elon Law. In no event will an applicant be allowed to continue as a student at Elon Law without submitting their final, official transcript indicating the award of a Bachelor’s degree by October 5th of the Fall the applicant enrolls at Elon Law; a student who has not submitted that transcript by October 5th will be withdrawn from Elon Law.
In rare instances, consistent with ABA Standards, the Law School may admit exceptionally well-qualified applicants who have successfully completed three-fourths of the work acceptable for a bachelor’s degree, e.g., through 3-2.5 year programs pursuant to articulation agreements with undergraduate institutions.
