EVENTS FOR ADMITTED STUDENTS

GGU classroom

The Admissions Office hosts a series special events designed to help admitted students acclimate to life at GGU Law. These events include Open Houses, informal luncheons with members of our distinguished faculty and off-site receptions for admitted students from outside the Bay Area. A complete schedule of admitted student events is included in the offer of admission.

Admitted students are also invited to take a guided campus tour, observe a first-year class, connect with current students and meet one-on-one with a member of the Admissions Staff. Contact the Admissions Office at lawadmit@ggu.edu or 415-442-6630 to schedule a campus visit. We look forward to meeting you soon!

SEAT DEPOSITS, OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS & HEALTH INSURANCE

SEAT DEPOSITS

Each admitted student is required to pay a non-refundable $600 seat deposit as an expression of intent to enroll at GGU Law. For those admitted students who enroll, seat deposits will be credited toward first semester tuition costs. Admitted students should refer to the administrative letter included in the admissions offer for the seat deposit payment deadline date(s). Please note that payment deadline extensions cannot be granted.


OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS

In order to enroll at GGU Law, admitted students must have obtained an undergraduate degree at an accredited institution before the first day of New Student Orientation. Admitted students are required to submit a final, official transcript reflecting the undergraduate degree and the conferred date. Please note that the transcript photocopies included in applicants' LSAC CAS Reports are not considered official for purposes of matriculating at GGU Law.


STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE

GGU Law is committed to providing an environment that fosters academic success. To that end, all registered students are required to have basic health insurance. The School of Law offers student health insurance through Kaiser Permanente. Students who are already enrolled in a health insurance plan providing comparable benefits may waive participation in the GGU plan by submitting a waiver form. Read more about Student Health Insurance.

Contact the Admissions Office at lawadmit@ggu.edu or 415-442-6630 with questions about seat deposits, official transcripts or health insurance.

NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION

GGU Law prepares its new students for the rigors of legal study prior to the beginning of regular classes. More information, including a preliminary orientation schedule, recommended and required reading, and a list of off-campus social events will be sent to all admitted students in early July, 2014.

Please note that class schedules and book lists will not be available until the first day of orientation. Students are strongly discouraged from purchasing casebooks or other texts until schedules and section assignments are distributed. Expenses incurred by the purchase of incorrect casebooks cannot be reimbursed by the law school.

HOUSING RESOURCES & ROOMMATE MATCHING

HOUSING RESOURCE GUIDE

While GGU Law does not provide housing, the Admissions Office does offer resources to help admitted students find suitable accommodations around San Francisco and the Bay Area. Many GGU Law students live in San Francisco, while others reside in the surrounding communities of the East Bay (Oakland, Alameda and Berkeley), the North Bay (Mill Valley and San Rafael) or the Peninsula (Daly City, South San Francisco and San Bruno). GGU Law's comprehensive Housing Resource Guide (PDF) includes detailed descriptions of these Bay Area communities, approximate rents and information about public transit and other services.

The Admissions staff is available to answer specific questions about your housing search and the unique character of the diverse neighborhoods surrounding the law school. Contact the Admissions Office at lawadmit@ggu.edu or 415-442-6630 with your housing questions.


ROOMMATE MATCHING

GGU Law offers an informal Roommate Matching Service for new students. Those interested in roommate matching may complete a Roommate Matching Form (PDF) and return it to the Admissions Office. The completed forms are then circulated among other new students who are interested in finding a GGU Law roommate.
