Student Classification System

Students register in Banner Self-Service according to their classification in the semester in which they are registering (not the semester for which they are registering). Students are classified each semester by their program of study (full-time, part-time, dual degree) and the years they have been attending law school.

Students may find their classification under “Student Information” in Banner Self-Service. Students with questions about their classification should contact the Law School Registrar’s Office. Below are the classifications and the priority assignments for each semester’s registration.
