New Student Enrollment Quick Guide

Term Start Dates

Please see the current academic calendar for the start date for your entry term. If you have any questions prior to the start of classes, please contact the Office of Admissions at (312) 906-5020 or admissions@kentlaw.iit.edu.

Transfer Credit Analysis and Registration

Please schedule an appointment, at your earliest convenience, with Associate Dean Stephen Sowle for an evaluation of possible transfer credits and to plan your course schedule. Dean Sowle may be reached at (312) 906-5282 or by e-mail at ssowle@kentlaw.iit.edu.

The extent of transfer credit will be decided on an individual basis based upon review of your law school transcript and credentials report, and review of the specific coursework completed, in order to ensure that your educational experience was sufficient to justify the granting of advanced standing.

After meeting with Dean Sowle, you will need to register online for your classes. Registration information for the upcoming semester is available in the online Registration Quick Guide available from the Current Students menu on the website.
