Course Registration & Housing Update

Posted on June 23, 2020

Please log on to your student center at and check your “to do list.” In order for us to complete registration, you need to have completed the “Financial Responsibility Statement”. The University Bursar Office requires all new and returning students to complete a financial responsibility statement (FRS) for each term. This is an easy three-step process that takes less than five minutes to complete. Go to this link and click on the ‘Financial Responsibility Statement’ box.

On a regular year, by this time incoming students have already scheduled or even had their visa appointments in local consulates or embassies. Please keep us updated if there are any developments in your country with respect to this. We are expecting that most students who can’t receive a visa before August will be deferred to spring 2021. If you have difficulty in scheduling a visa appointment due to COVID-19, we are happy to help you defer your application to Spring 2021 or Fall 2021, all you have to do is send us an email. Your admission as well as your scholarship will be deferred.

Please follow up regarding your vaccine records. For more information about the vaccine requirements, please visit our blog post or contact the student health center at

We also wanted to update everyone to let them know that the mandatory LL.M. orientation will be Monday, August 17th – Friday, August 21st. All incoming LL.M. students are required to attend this orientation. More details about times to come.
