Enrolling in Classes Outside the Law School
Only LL.M students and J.D. students entering their third term or higher are eligible to take courses outside the Law School and apply the credits earned in those courses toward their degrees. To begin this process, a student selects the class which he/she would like to take by visiting Wolverine Access. You may then apply for Law School credit by completing the online External Enrollment form, where you will be asked to describe the course content and how it is relevant to, or will contribute to, your education as a lawyer.
If approved, you will be notified by email, usually within 48 hours. Please read the notification carefully. An approval message will include important instructions that you must follow. You can then register for this class on Wolverine Access. If you have any problems registering (for instance, you need departmental permission, the class is full, etc) you must work directly with the department that is responsible for the non-law class to resolve them.
A rejection message will sometimes indicate that your request could ultimately be approved if you provide additional details. Please refer to the Law School Academic Regulations, Part Four, Section 1 for further information.
More information about enrolling for non-law classes is available on the Office of the Registrar's online Registration Instructions Web page.
