Request for Transcripts 

(This request is in addition to the transcripts you have already submitted to LSAC)

The University requires two official transcripts from your undergraduate degree-granting institution, and one official transcript from each graduate school and/or law school in which you have been enrolled for credit.  Your registration for law classes is conditional until the College of Law has received your transcript(s).

Official transcripts bear the institutional seal and must show the award of your degree and the date your degree was granted.  If you are a recent graduate, transcripts should not be sent until your degree is posted on the transcript.

UT students can complete this transcript request form and submit it.

If you have not already done so, please request the Registrar at your higher education institution(s) to send your transcripts to:

FAQs

When will I register for classes?

There’s no need to worry about selecting your classes - the Office of Admissions will take care of this for you!  Schedules will be released mid-summer.  After you receive your schedule, you will need to log in to the myUT Portal to complete your class registration.  It is an honor code violation to make changes to your schedule without the express permission of the Associate Dean.

Back to FAQ list

When do I need to pay my tuition?

Tuition for the Fall 2018 semester is due in full on August 17, 2018.  Scholarships, if applicable, will be posted to your account by late July. 

To expedite financial aid processing, all students should complete their FAFSA well in advance of the first day of classes.  This is necessary to ensure that your financial aid is in place to pay your tuition in a timely manner.

Back to FAQ list

Why do I need to provide more transcripts, and can I use the ones I sent to LSAC?

We require additional transcripts for two reasons:

  • First, one copy of your undergraduate and graduate transcripts will be maintained, permanently, in your file at Toledo Law; and
  • Second, one copy of your undergraduate transcript will be sent to the Office of Bar Examiners when you apply for the bar examination.  This alleviates the necessity of requesting additional transcripts for bar applications.

Unfortunately, we cannot reuse the transcripts provided to LSAC.  For our purposes, we must have original, certified and official copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts.  The transcripts which accompany your application from LSAC are photocopies.

I’m a Michigan/Indiana resident who received the Michigan/Indiana Resident Scholarship Guarantee.  Why is there an out-of-state surcharge on my bill?

All non-OH residents, excluding Monroe County, MI residents, are assessed an out-of-state surcharge on their bill each semester.  Toledo Law will cover the out-of-state surcharge for all Michigan and Indiana residents through our MI & IN Resident Scholarship Guarantee.  (see http://www.utoledo.edu/law/admissions/apply/residency.html for more details)

Back to FAQ list

Where can I buy books?

Students may purchase books online or through one of our two on-campus bookstores, Barnes & Noble and The Student Bookstore.  Please view the Fall 2018 Syllabi/First Assignments/Books under the Law tab on the myUT Portal for course information and a list of required textbooks for your courses. 

Back to FAQ list

What are the important dates to know for Toledo Law?
