3.12 Registration Restrictions

First year students will be unable to remain registered in classes if they:

  • Have not furnished the Office of Admissions or Office of the Registrar with an official transcript of their undergraduate work or of graduate work done before matriculation at the Law School by the deadline communicated by the Office of Admissions each year. The transcript(s) must be sent directly from the other institution(s) to the Law School and must bear the degree earned. 

Students may be restricted from registering for classes if they:

  • Have registration holds placed by any office of the University (such as the Bursar’s Office, the Financial Aid Office, etc.); or
  • Have not satisfied the State of Illinois immunization requirements.

Students should check my.uchicago.edu prior to registration each quarter to ensure they do not have holds on their record that will impact their ability to register for classes. 

Students who are not registered by 5:00 p.m. on Friday of the 3rd week of the quarter may be subject to an administrative leave of absence in that quarter. At the beginning of the next quarter, if the student has failed to clear all restrictions, the student will be administratively withdrawn from the Law School by the Dean of Students (unless the student is on a documented non-administrative leave of absence). 

Additional restrictions pertaining to specific quarters/classes/students are listed online at http://www.law.uchicago.edu/students/registration.
