It is advisable to begin the process of securing an externship sooner rather than later. While first-choice placements cannot be guaranteed, the wealth of law-related resources in Washington, D.C. creates a host of interesting possibilities for externship placement. Those interested in participating in the externship program should contact that office as soon as possible.
  • Summer Financial Aid
    Loan assistance is available to meet summer costs. A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed for aid to be processed. Application details are available from the Office of Financial Aid page. Students visiting from other schools are bound by the policies of their home institution regarding summer aid and apply for assistance there. A Consortium Agreement between WCL and the home school must be completed for funds to be transferred to cover American University charges. The Consortium Agreement and additional information are on our web site. Contact the WCL Office of Financial Aid if you have questions.
  • Degree Credit
    Students may take no more than 7 credits. Students who wish to accelerate graduation by enrolling for summer courses must have permission from their home institutions.
