Autumn 2024 MLIS Law Admissions Timeline
|Law Librarianship (rolling admissions)||Applications will open on Sept. 15, 2023, and are reviewed on an ongoing basis through Aug. 7, 2024. Note: Apps may close as early as June 1, 2024, depending on room remaining in the cohort.|
After a round of review, if no decision has been reached, the admissions committee may choose to put some applicants "on hold" and move them to the next round of review. Applicants with this status will be notified.
Note for the June 11 deadline: International candidates may apply; however, candidates who would need an F-1 visa for the residential program and are not already in the U.S. are discouraged from applying given the limited time available for visa processing prior to the start of school.
For each round, the Application for Graduate Study and all application materials possible, including letters of recommendation, should be submitted by the stated deadline. Review and/or consideration of incomplete applications or late materials is at the discretion of the MLIS admissions committee. If application materials are missing due to circumstances beyond the applicant's control, the committee will take that into consideration and make its judgment based on the information available.
