    USEFUL REGISTRATION TIPS

  • JD students must register for at least 10 credits but no more than 17. The system will block you from exceeding the limit. If joint-degree students want to reach their maximum credits of 18 with a MELP-only course, please notify the Registrar’s Office.
  • Please check days and times carefully on CampusWeb when making your selections. The system will not allow you to register for classes that conflict.  If you have a question, please contact the Registrar.
  • Please check prerequisites for all classes in which you plan to enroll. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite class and the system blocks your registration, please email registrar@vermontlaw.edu with specific course code information or stop in the Registrar’s Office so the restriction can be overridden.
  • Joint Degree students – The online registration process does not allow you to designate which courses you wish to share. Please send an email to registrar@vermontlaw.edu indicating which course(s) you would like to share. You may change the designation of “shared” courses until the last day of classes in each semester. If notice is received after this time, the grade will not be shared (but the credits may). Please consult your degree audits on CampusWeb as you plan to meet your requirements for both programs.
  • Students who have not taken all the required first-year courses, should register for these courses at this time. As you cannot do this via CampusWeb, please contact the Registrar for assistance prior to your registration appointment time.
  • Bar Admission Requirements – In planning class selections, please be aware that some jurisdictions require specific courses and that some also limit the amount of field placement or clinical programs; e.g., New York . It is prudent for students to check the requirements/restrictions for jurisdictions prior to registration.
  • Should you have any trouble with the online registration process, please email registar@vermontlaw.edu.
