(%) To register, a student must have an overall GPA of at least 2.3 (C+) and have successfully completed Basic Tax. (Students may not take Basic Tax and Tax Clinic concurrently.) Contact the Philip C. Cook Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic for details.

Student Accounts must receive fees by noon Wednesday, May 14, for regular registration and by 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 3, for late registration. Students must register AND pay Wednesday, May 14, deadline. If you miss this deadline, your courses will be dropped and you will be required to reregister during the late registration phase, May 27-June 3. Students dropped for nonpayment of fees will not be able to reregister for courses that are full without the permission of professors. Pay careful attention to the registration process; mistakes may result in your being registered for the wrong classes or your being charged additional fees. Students will not be given credit for courses they attend if they are not registered for said courses, nor will adjustments be made at the end of the semester for incorrect registration. Incorrect registration also precludes students inclusion in email discussion lists. It is the student’s responsibility to make certain that they are registered for the correct courses.

Other Helpful Information

  • NORMAL COURSE LOADS, LIGHT-LOADS AND OVERLOADS (and what to do about them): For summer, full time is 6 hours and part time is 4-5 hours. Students may take no more than seven hours in the summer term. Any deviation must be approved by the associate dean for academic affairs. Forms for overloads, light-loads or program-change forms are located on the third floor.
  • COURSES WITH LIMITED ENROLLMENT: Courses listed as having a limited enrollment will usually be filled on a first-come; first-served basis. All courses offered have a limit, and are, therefore, subject to being filled. To better ensure your inclusion in a course you think will fill quickly, you are encouraged to register as early as possible. Course limits are based on (a) the pedagogical needs; and/or (b) the size of the room. See individual professors if you have questions regarding their enrollment policies.
  • VARIABLE-HOUR COURSES: These courses are noted on the schedule with the symbol (+1). Courses without this symbol (and that is most of them) are not eligible for variable hour status. The decision on the number of hours must be made within the first week of class. See individual professors for details. No adjustment in credit hours will be made after Tuesday, June 3.
  • PREREQUISITES: Students may not enroll in courses for which they lack the prerequisites. The course descriptions in the College of Law Bulletin specify the prerequisites for each course. Unless otherwise indicated, the minimum prerequisites for each elective course is the completion of all first-year full-time courses. By the way, the computer let me is not an acceptable reason to ignore the prerequisite requirement.
  • AUDITING COURSES: The decision to audit a course must be made during the registration period. No adjustment from credit to audit status or audit to credit status for a course will be made after Tuesday, June 3. All audits must be approved by the professor of the course.
  • INDEPENDENT RESEARCH PROJECTS: Any student desiring to register for an Independent Research project must obtain written approval from the associate dean for academic affairs no later than Tuesday, June 3.
  • WRITING REQUIREMENT COURSES: The Schedule of Classes lists some of the courses which may satisfy the requirement. If you have questions about whether a course will satisfy the writing requirement, contact the professor. You must complete the Writing Requirement Form, have the professor sign it and give it to Lauren or Tricia prior to graduation.
  • WITHDRAWALS: If a student drops a course during the regular or late registration period, the dropped course(s) will not show up on the transcript. Courses dropped after the late registration period, but by the midpoint, will be considered “withdrawals” and a grade of W will be recorded on the transcript. Courses dropped after the midpoint will receive a WF.
  • Withdrawals after the midpoint are granted only in cases of hardship. Failure to follow this procedure will result in the awarding of a WF instead of a W. A grade of WF is treated as an F for the purpose of computing the grade point average. Retaking the course will not expunge the WF from the student’s academic record. Students who find they must withdraw after the midpoint should make an appointment with the associate dean of academic affairs to discuss their hardship as soon as they become aware of the situation.
  • A NOTE TO NEW STUDENTS: The Immunization Requirement must be completed before any registration can take place. If you have not completed this requirement, you will not be able to register for any courses. If you have questions about this, call the Immunization Office at 404-413-1930. The College of Law cannot remove immunization holds.
  • A NOTE TO GUEST STUDENTS: Note that your period of attendance is stated in your acceptance letter. Guest students should also be aware that Georgia State University College of Law grades will not be available for transfer to your home institution until after Tuesday, Aug. 5. We do not give early grades to guest students
