Registration for first-year law students is conducted by the Duquesne University School of Law Registrar's Office in mid-July. First-year students may not change the course section or division to which you are assigned. Prospective students with questions should contact the Admissions or Registrar's Office at 412-396-6300. You may also email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The School of Law's "Orientation Program" for ALL first year day, evening, and part-time students is mandatory and usually scheduled for the third week of August. No exceptions! For a first-year student's file to be complete, he/she must provide the School of Law with a passport-size photograph of himself/herself. In addition, the School of Law must receive a certified (official) copy of your undergraduate and graduate transcripts with the appropriate university seal. We will not accept a copy from your LSAC file.
All transcripts must be issued by the registrar from your previous school(s) with the words "Degree Awarded" on it and directly mailed to the School of Law. Hand delivered transcripts are not acceptable. You are officially a law student after attending the mandatory orientation program and signing all of the appropriate forms.
Your financial obligation as a registered student who does not subsequently attend will NOT be cancelled unless a written (typed) notification of your decision not to attend is given to the Law School Admissions Office before the first day of classes. Notification received after the opening day of classes is subject to the official withdrawal policy which can be found in the Academic Bulletin.
Tuition bills are only available online by logging into your DORI account. Tuition can be paid by eCheck or by credit card. For more information regarding billing or financial aid please visit the Student Accounts or Financial Aid websites.
