Failure to submit your required admission deposits by the appropriate deadlines will result in the immediate cancellation of your admission to the USF School of Law.
Admission to the University of San Francisco School of Law is contingent upon successful completion of a baccalaureate degree prior to the beginning of the Fall 2013 semester. You are required to submit an official transcript confirming completion of your baccalaureate degree by August 1, 2013. The transcript must be sent by the degree-granting institution directly to the USF School of Law Office of Admissions.
Hand-delivered transcripts are not acceptable even if they are in a sealed envelope, nor are transcripts received from LSAC as part of your JD CAS report.
Please submit two passport-sized photos by June 24, 2013. One photo
will be added to your permanent file and is REQUIRED of all new students. The
second photo is optional and will be used in the New Student Picture Book, which
is an internal law school publication. The New Student Picture Book, distributed
to faculty, administrators, and first year students lists only your name, undergraduate
school, and city of permanent residence. A Student Directory Form will be sent
to you along with your second deposit reminder notice. Photo(s) may be submitted in hard copy or emailed in JPEG format to email@example.com. Please submit your photo(s)
with the Student Directory Form.
Change of Address
It is imperative that you notify the admissions office of any address changes
(including email address). You are solely responsible for any and all important
information sent to you by the law school and the University of San Francisco, especially documentation that
requires responses by specific deadlines.
In the event that you will be unavailable during deadline periods, you must
submit a letter to the admissions office authorizing a proxy to act on your
behalf. To contact the Office of Admissions by email, click here.
Please note that information regarding your application and admission to the USF
School of Law is confidential and will not be released to anyone other than
the applicant. If you are unable to communicate with the Office of Admissions
directly, you must submit written authorization for a parent, spouse, family
member, or friend to act as your proxy and make decisions or inquiries on your
Disclosures/Character & Fitness
All admitted students are required to notify the USF School of Law of any changes
to the information included in their admission application, including any
changes in the Character and Fitness section of the application. In particular, all admitted
applicants must notify the director of admissions immediately if they have been charged, arrested or convicted
of any felony or misdemeanor or other offense with the sole exception of a minor
traffic violation after submitting the application. Arrest or conviction of DUI (or any
alcohol or drug related offense) is not a minor traffic violation. Conviction
may be a legal consequence if 1) a verdict of guilty after trial by judge or
jury, 2) a plea of guilty, or 3) a plea of nolo contendere.
Newly admitted applicants are required to submit a detailed written description of any updated Character and Fitness disclosures to the Admissions Office if an incident occurs after an offer of admission is made and to the Office of the Assistant Dean for Academic Services if an incident occurs after classes begin. Information disclosed after an applicant has been offered admission will automatically result in a re-evaluation of the applicant's file.
The Bar Examiners will receive reports of any such convictions from law enforcement agencies. Failure to disclose this information in your application may result in revocation of your admission decision, dismissal from school, revocation of any degree awarded by USF School of Law and denial of admission to the Bar, and referral to the LSAC Subcommittee on Misconduct and Irregularities in the Admission Process.
The University of San Francisco School of Law does NOT grant admission deferments.
Your admission to the law school is for the Fall 2013 term only. If you are unable
to attend law school at this time, you must re-apply for admission.
