Applying For Admission

Ave Maria School of Law enrolls new, first-year students on a full time basis for the summer or fall terms. The AMSL Advantage Summer Start program begins mid-May and Regular program begins mid-August. The Admissions Committee will consider requests to attend less than full time on a case-by case basis.

The deadline for submitting an application for the AMSL Advantage Summer Start is April 15. The deadline for fall entry is July 15. The Admissions Committee will consider applications received after the July 15 deadline on a case-by-case basis.

The Admissions Committee evaluates applications for admission on a "rolling admissions" basis beginning in early November, with most admission decisions being rendered within six weeks of the date that the application form and all supporting materials are received by the Office of Admissions.
