FOR STUDENTS WHO HAVE NOT YET SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED ALL REQUIRED FIRST-YEAR COURSES
INCLUDING TRANSFER STUDENTS, PART-TIME STUDENTS AND OTHERS
Updated September 2012
Occasionally, continuing students matriculate into Rutgers School of Law without having completed all of our required first-year courses. Most commonly, these are students who transfer into the Law School or who have begun as part-time students, but sometimes they are also students who have not passed a required first-year course.
A description of all courses required for graduation is available in Topic 6 of the Academic Rules and Regulations adopted by the Faculty, and may be viewed here. It is the policy of the Law School that any first-year course not already successfully completed must be taken in the first semester it is offered after the student matriculates, subject to the normal sequencing of first-year courses. When more than one section of a first-year course is offered, students will be administratively assigned to a section.
Additionally, transfer students and others who have not completed all required first-year courses should, prior to registering, consult Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Adam F. Scales (room E323), firstname.lastname@example.org for advice on (a) completing required courses, and (b) other courses for which they may register.
