If UConn School of Law is your first choice, you should take advantage of our Early Action Program.
Early Action candidates will receive an admission decision within 14 days of completing the application file.
If admitted early, you will:
- Receive a guaranteed merit scholarship. The amount of the merit scholarship will vary.
- Have the ability to plan early for the start of school by securing housing and completing all law school matriculation requirements.
- Save money on law school applications and deposits.
The Early Action Program allows applicants who are confident that they will enroll at UConn Law, if admitted, to secure their seats in the class. The Early Action Program follows all JD admissions requirements but allows candidates to receive a decision earlier in the admissions cycle.
The Early Action Program is a binding admissions program. Please pay careful attention to the requirements to ensure the Early Action Program is right for you:
- Early Action applicants will be notified of the decision within 14 days after the application for admission is complete.
- Candidates admitted through the Early Action Program are guaranteed a merit scholarship. Although merit scholarships will be awarded at the time of admission, a full financial aid package will not be available until later in the admissions cycle. Should you need to review a full financial aid package (scholarships and loans) prior to making a final decision, please think carefully about whether the Early Action Program is right for you.
- The program is a binding program which means:
- An Early Action applicant must enroll in UConn School of Law if accepted;
- Early Action applicants may apply to other law schools, however, once admitted through this program, the applicant must immediately withdraw all other law school applications and cannot apply to additional law schools;
- Early Action applicants admitted to the program must decline acceptance to all other law schools.
- Early Action applicants cannot defer admission.
- If admitted to the Early Action Program, you must submit a non-refundable deposit of a $500 within 14 days of admission.
- Candidates who are wait-listed through the Early Action program are not bound to attend UConn School of Law if admitted thereafter.
- Candidates who are denied admission through this Program cannot re-apply through our regular admissions process.
All Early Action applicants must submit a signed Early Action Program Agreement with their UConn School of Law application through LSAC.
The Early Application Program deadline is January 1, 2018.
