Admitted Students

Obligations: Residency, Transcripts, Current Information

Your residence classification for fee-paying purposes was determined at the time of your application. Nonresident students who wish to become Indiana residents for fee-paying purposes should contact the Registrar’s Office to submit an appeal.

You can find answers to frequently asked questions regarding residency requirements and a link to view the rules used to determine residency on the Office of the Registrar’s web page at http://registrar.iupui.edu.

Please note: if you are receiving any type of nonresident merit award, you will lose your eligibility to receive that award if your residence classification changes. You may, however, still be eligible for a merit award with your resident classification. Students receiving merit based awards through the Office of Admissions are advised to keep our office informed of changes to their residence classification.

Official Transcripts

Please remember that we require an official undergraduate transcript showing the conferral of your baccalaureate degree to be sent directly from your undergraduate institution to our office. If you have not already requested this transcript, please do so now. Transcripts should be received by our office by July 1, 2013, if your graduation date is on or before May 2013. If you will earn your baccalaureate during the summer of 2013, you MUST contact the Office of Admissions.

The transcript you sent to LSAC/CAS does not fulfill this requirement.

Please have transcripts mailed to:

IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law
Office of Admissions
Lawrence W. Inlow Hall, Room 121
530 W. New York Street
Indianapolis, IN 46202

Your obligation to keep your information current

Please email lawadmit@iupui.edu or write the School of Law Office of Admissions with any change in your current address or contact information so there will not be an interruption in the flow of updates or information from the Office of Admissions or Office of Student Affairs regarding school in the fall.

In addition, any actions or incidents that would change or add to the previously answered questions relating to character and fitness, such as traffic violations, misdemeanors, etc., must also be updated.

Prior to being certified to sit for the bar, bar examiners may review the information that is contained in your application during their character and fitness investigation. Failure to disclose issues may result in a decision not to certify you to sit for the Bar. Failure to disclose may also result in the revocation of your admission and/or your law degree. You have an ongoing obligation to keep your information current, and it is imperative that you do so.

If there are any updates, please submit a statement of explanation immediately to the Office of Admissions. Such an update may include, but is not limited to, the following:

    • Disclosure of all arrests, convictions, accusations, felonies, misdemeanors, infractions, speeding tickets and traffic offenses, as a juvenile or adult, including incidents that have been expunged
    • Disclosure of all small claims, divorce, landlord/tenant, protective orders, and guardianship
    • Disclosure of any suspensions, warnings, expulsions, disciplinary proceedings, academic probation from a college, university, law school, or professional organization
