Fall Schedule will be posted after Sept. 1 and will run
Sept 22- November 26, 2014

Information Sessions:
During the academic year Admissions hosts information sessions led by an Admissions representative and current student. These sessions cover the application process, financial aid options, academic programs, and student activities.

Class Visits:
Admissions coordinates visits to a first-year class and will post the schedule soon. There will be both day and evening class visits options.

Moving to Tenley Campus in 2015:
The law school will move to its new Tenley Campus for fall 2015. Since any future students would not enroll at our current facility, we will not conduct tours during the current academic year. To learn more about our future 8-acre campus please view this site: http://tenley.wcl.american.edu/

If you aren't able to visit for a scheduled activity, you may schedule an informational meeting with an Admissions Counselor. To be fair to all applicants, we do not offer evaluative interviews. Our Committee on Admissions expects candidates to detail their achievements, challenges, and academic abilities in their application materials.
