This checklist has been developed as a calendar guide to assist you as you start your law school career at UC Irvine.

If you are an international student, go to the New International Law Student Checklist.





  • Request Official Transcript with degree posted to clear provisional admission.
        Mail to:

        Office of Admissions

        UC Irvine School of Law

        401 E. Peltason Dr., Ste. 1000

      Irvine CA 92697-8000


  • Pay tuition and fees
      All financial aid funds administered by UCI (grants, scholarships, fellowships and federal loans) will appear as a credit on SBS 10 days before the first day of law school instruction; students must be enrolled in at least six units. Your financial aid funds will be applied to university charges first, and then refunded to you to pay for living expenses.
  • Apply for UCSHIP (Student Health Insurance)


September & October
  • First week of October, submit your official undergraduate transcript showing receipt of a bachelor’s degree. The ABA requires each admitted student to submit a final official undergraduate transcript to the School of Law. The copy you supplied to the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is NOT an official transcript (ABA Standards, 502-I).
