Rolling Admissions Decisions

We make admissions decisions as we receive applications. Thus, applicants are encouraged to apply early.

Late Applications

We accept applications after the application deadline if space is available. However, applicants considering late submission should be aware of course registration dates, typically in the beginning of June for the fall term and mid-October for the spring term. After the initial registration date, course selection may be restricted as many classes close quickly due to enrollment limits. If you are admitted after the registration date, we will do our best to help you register for the courses that interest you, but cannot guarantee course availability. For exact registration dates, please see the law school academic calendar.

Please also be advised that if you require a visa to study at Fordham, visa processing times are lengthy and are out of our control. Fordham's Office for International Services requires several weeks to issue I-20 documentation. If you are unable to secure a visa before our start date, you will have to defer to another semester.
