The registration process comprises four steps, each governed by specific rules and deadlines:

1. Plan Your Schedule

a. Guidance, Rules & Instructions for All Courses

  • When selecting courses, consult the following materials and resources:
  • Members of the Class of 2023 only:
    • MUST enroll in the upper level writing requirements. These entries have no credit value, but will be used to track the completion of these graduation requirements. If one or both are already entered on your record, do not re-enroll.
Course Course # CRN Credits
Clinical Portfolio (ALWR) LCP02 27092 0 cr.
Seminar & Research Paper (RALWR) LSRP 27093 0 cr.
  • Credit Limits: Full-time students must take a minimum of 10 credits and may take a maximum of 15 credit hours during the semester. Part-time students must take a minimum of 7 credits and may take a maximum of 11 credit hours during the semester.  Students request permission to exceed maximum credit hours by submitting a Permission to Exceed Term Credit Limit Form (pdf) to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. If approved, the student must submit the completed and approved form to the Registrar’s Office, indicating what course(s) are to be added to the schedule.
  • Limited Enrollment Courses and Wait Lists: Some courses have limited enrollment. Full-time and Part-time students in the Class of 2023 will have enrollment preference until 11:59 pm on November 14, 2022. In addition, Part-time students will have preference for certain course sections which are offered in the evening. If a limited enrollment course closes, you may email the Registrar’s Office (lawregistrar@udc.edu) and ask to be placed on the wait list. You will be notified if space becomes available during the Add/Drop period.
  • Upper Level Writing Requirement: All students are required to complete an Upper Level Writing Requirement (ULWR), which has two components: the Research and Legal Analysis Writing Requirement (RALWR), often referred to as the Research Paper Requirement, and the Applied Legal Writing Requirement (ALWR), often referred to as the Clinic Portfolio. Refer to  Student Handbook Section 1.6 for details.
  • Core Electives Requirement: All students are required to successfully complete any three courses from a list of “required core electives.” See Student Handbook Section 1.4.
  • Prerequisites: Course prerequisites must be satisfactorily completed prior to taking the subsequent course. A student who is currently taking or has just completed a prerequisite for which the grade has not yet been recorded may register for the course, provided that the student must drop the course if the student’s grade in the prerequisite course is not satisfactory. See Student Handbook Section 3.2.
  • Classes not meeting minimum enrollment requirements are subject to cancellation.

In accordance with Student Handbook Sec. 3.1 and the Model Schedules, students must register for the following required courses in Spring if not already successfully completed:

Class of 2025 Part-time Class of 2024 Full-time Class of 2024 Part-time Class of 2023
• Criminal Procedure
• Property II
• Constitutional Law I
• Constitutional Law II
• Property II
• Clinic I
• Property II • Legal & Bar Success Foundations

Part-time students will receive preference for evening sections. As credit limits allow, students may add electives but may not substitute an elective for a required course. Students who need to retake a required course should consult the Acting Associate Dean for Academic Affairs about appropriate course selections. Any student seeking an exception must contact the Acting Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

b. Rules & Instructions for Specific Courses

  • Advanced Legal Analysis: Bar Exam Multiple Choice (L347) is an elective course intended for 2L Day and 3L Evening students. It is distinct from Legal & Bar Success Foundations, a required course intended for 3L Day and 4L Evening students.
  • Advanced Legal Writing (L241) is a course option for satisfying the Research and Legal Analysis Writing Requirement (RALWR). Moot Court is a prerequisite for Advanced Legal Writing. Spaces are limited, so refer to the Student Handbook, Section 1.6.1, and course schedule for other RALWR options if needed.
  • Clinic: Clinic assignments are determined by a clinic match process, which is now closed. Students will receive additional information from the Clinical Program. The Registrar’s Office will enroll students into their assigned clinics. Once enrolled, students may not drop clinic from their schedule unless they have notified the Registrar and have received permission from the Acting Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
  • Externship (L610): Students who wish to enroll in the 4-credit Externship course for Spring must complete an Externship Registration Form (.pdf), get the signature of Professor Broderick, and submit it to the Registrar’s office for enrollment.
  • Law Review: Enroll using the applicable CRN(s) and course number(s) below. (If you are eligible for 3 credits, please enroll in all CRNs.)

  • Turbo Courses (L230T, L300B, L406T): Turbo Courses are intensive classes compressed into a short time period. Their class schedules differ from the standard time frame set on the Academic Calendar and different rules apply. Please see the Spring 2023 Course Schedule for meeting dates and times and Student Handbook Section 3.4.2 for Turbo rules.
  • Independent Study, Elective & Extended Clinics, and Auditing: Please refer to the Student Handbook for rules regarding Independent Study (Sec. 3.4.1), Elective and Extended Clinics (Sec. 3.3), and auditing courses (Sec. 4.7). The required registration forms for each are available in the Registrar’s Office and online. These forms must be completed, approved and returned to the Registrar’s Office by the end of the Add/Drop period. The Registrar will enroll students in these courses.

2. Determine Your Payment Amount and Deadlines

You must complete all steps of the registration process, including payment of your bill and/or disbursement of your financial aid, by Tuesday, January 3, 2023, or your course selections may be canceled by the University. If your course selections are canceled and you wish to re-select, you must see the Registrar. You will be required to complete the On-Site & Late Registration Form and pay the late registration fee ($150). Registration for the Spring 2023 semester ends on January 13, 2023.

All students are required to have health insurance coverage. If you were enrolled during the Fall 2022 semester, your coverage (or waiver) remains in effect for the Spring and Summer 2023 semesters. If you were NOT enrolled during Fall 2022, you will be charged a pro-rated premium for the University-sponsored health insurance plan unless you submit a waiver request by the University’s deadline. Please refer to the University’s First Student site for details.

If there is a hold on your record that is preventing registration, please take the following steps:

  1. Sign into my.udc.edu. If you have trouble with your log-in, contact the UDC IT Help Desk for assistance.
  2. Once in the system: (1) Click Banner Self-Service; (2) Under the Student tab, click Student Records; (3) On the Student Records page, click View Holds.
  3. The View Holds page will show you the hold, provide the reason and indicate the source of the hold. If you have questions concerning the hold or need to take steps to have it removed, please contact the department from which it originated. A Student Accounts hold requires that the outstanding balance be paid in full online or at the cashier’s office. The student must then contact the UDC Office of Student Accounts (studentaccounts@udc.edu) to have the hold released.
