XV. Withdrawal From School

A. Prior to completing one full semester of study at Fordham Law School

Students who withdraw from the Law School prior to completing their first semester may do so only by delivering a written notice [to the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs] on or before the last day of classes of the fall semester. If, after withdrawing from the Law School the student wishes to re-enroll, he or she must file a new application for admissions with the Office of Admissions and follow normal application procedures.

B. After completing one full semester of study at Fordham Law School

Students who withdraw from the Law School after completing at least one semester of study may withdraw from school only by delivering a written notice [to the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs] on or before the last day of class in any semester. If a student who has withdrawn wishes to re-enroll, he or she must file a request for readmission with the Assistant Dean for Admissions and the Registrar at least sixteen (16) weeks before the start of the semester for which he or she seeks re-admittance, at which time the Admissions Committee will then consider the request.

A student who withdraws from the Law School after completing his or her first semester of the first year of law school will receive credit for all completed courses.

If an upper-class student withdraws after completing the first semester of a year and is later re admitted, he or she may enroll for courses in the next subsequent semester. The student will receive all credits earned prior to withdrawing.

Prior to second week of term  100%
