Next Steps


Class Registration

Beginning in August

Registration for classes will open at the beginning of August after the incoming class has been assigned to class sections. The Office of Admissions will notify all incoming 1Ls when registration will begin and will provide all pertinent instructions. Please DO NOT register until you receive these instructions.

You will not be assessed tuition until you register. You do not need to worry about paying tuition until after you register for classes. If you are an out-of-state student with a Tuition Equalization Scholarship, the TES waiver will not apply to your account until you are assessed tuition.


Summer Academic Success Program

August 3-12, 2020 - Athens, GA

Each year, we offer a voluntary summer program that begins before orientation and is designed to enhance the academic success of students whose past experience may indicate that some additional preparation might be beneficial to their transition to the rigors of law school.


1L Orientation

August 12-17, 2020 - Athens, GA

Attendance is mandatory for Orientation. Please note dress is casual for Thursday and business casual for Friday. You will need to dress in professional attire on Monday for your student directory photo. The 1L section assignments, class schedule, book lists, and first day assignments will be sent to you by email at the beginning of August.
