Summer Visitors

Summer Visitor Registration Process

The University of Massachusetts School of Law - Dartmouth welcomes visiting students in good standing from other ABA or state- approved law schools to enroll in the summer session. 

Visitor summer registration runs from March 25 to April 25. If you wish to apply at a later date, please contact the Law Enrollment Center.

Transcript Request

To transfer credits to your home school, you will need to request that an official UMass Law transcript be sent directly to your school. A signed written request is required. This form is available online from the Registrar's office and at the Law Enrollment Center. 

Required Summer Visitor Registration Checklist

  • Complete the application (currently unavailable) with non-refundable $50.00 fee.
  • Complete the Visiting Student Registration Request (currently unavailable) with full payment.
  • Have your law school send a letter directly to the UMass Law, stating that credit earned at UMass Law will be acceptable toward meeting your degree requirements and that you are in good standing.

UMass Law students have priority in registering for summer session. Admission as a visiting student entitles you to enroll in courses on a space-available basis.

Courses without sufficient enrollment are subject to cancellation. Registrants will be notified if any changes are made to the program.

The Law Enrollment Center Office will notify summer visitors if their registration has not been approved or if a course is over-enrolled.

Other Regulations

The rules and procedures of the UMass Dartmouth Academic Integrity Policy and the UMass Law Student Handbook (PDF) apply to all courses offered at the law school.
