First-Year Applicants

Apply for Fall 2020
Our priority application deadline for first-year applicants has been extended to July 1.

Application Requirements

Deadlines for transfer, visiting and dual-degree applicants may vary.

Full-Time or Part-Time

Students may apply to the full-time JD program or the part-time (day) JD program. Applicants may not apply to both programs. Students in the full-time program complete their degree in three academic years, while students in the part-time (day) program typically complete their degree in four academic years. Applications for first-year students are accepted for the fall semester only.

Reapplying First-Year Applicants

All re-applicants must submit any updated transcripts of recent coursework to LSAC. In addition:

  • An updated CAS report will be requested.
  • Re-applicants need to have a current CAS subscription and pay any additional fees to have a CAS report sent to USF.
  • Any applicant who has previously registered at another law school must have a letter of good standing submitted by that school.
  • In the event that the applicant sat for examinations at another law school, an official transcript and class rank are also required.
