Admitted Student Open House

Mandatory First-Year Orientation for all entering students will take place on August 15-18, 2016.  Your Orientation packet with all of the details is being finalized now and should arrive by early July.

Seat Deposits

Once accepted, to reserve your seat in the Fall 2016 class, you must submit your non-refundable seat deposit(s).  All deposits are credited directly towards your tuition and fees.  Deposit deadlines will vary based upon the date that you were accepted.  Please refer to your admit packet for your specific deposit deadline.  Pay online by electronic check or credit card MasterCard or Visa.  


Join our group: WNE Law - 2016 Entering Class! The group will continue to be an excellent way to find out valuable information and to ask questions of administration, faculty, alumni, and current students. You may also ask questions of your fellow incoming students. Discussions in the past have included: first year experience, first year academics, housing, pre-orientation events, Orientation information, 2015 incoming class news and announcements, faculty and staff, student services, summer readings and movies, financial aid, and more. We encourage you to request an invite to join.

Final Transcript

You must provide an official final transcript showing your undergraduate degree and the date it was awarded, to satisfy the American Bar Association (ABA) requirements.  This final transcript should arrive prior to the start of Orientation.  If the transcript that you have already provided to LSAC was a final degree-granting transcript, then no further action is required.  However, if your transcript(s) were submitted to LSAC prior to the date that your degree was conferred, you must request an updated final official transcript containing the required details be submitted to LSAC.  In the alternative, you may have your degree-granting institution send your final transcript directly to us here at Western New England University School of law.  Should you have any quesiotns regarding your final transcript, please contact the Admissions Office.
