Required Tasks for All Admitted Students

Submit Your Official Transcript

The American Bar Association requires verification of completion of your baccalaureate degree. Prior to enrolling at Northern Illinois University College of Law, our office must receive your official transcript in an sealed envelope directly from your undergraduate registrar. Transcripts sent to the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) do not suffice for this requirement. Your transcript should be sent by August 1 to:

Northern Illinois University College of Law
151 Swen Parson Hall
DeKalb, Illinois 60115

Submit Your Immunization Records

Submit proof of immunizations to University Health Services. Please allow ample time to obtain your records. Documentation must be on file at Health Services before August 1st. Failure to provide records may result in an account hold prior to the start of classes.

NIU One Card

The NIU OneCard is your official NIU identification, is used for document printing, allows use of Huskie Bucks and is required to enter the Law Library after 6:00 p.m., so you have to get one! The OneCard Office in Holmes Student Center will be open to entering law students during orientation.
