Admitted Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Syracuse Law! We hope you will decide to become a member of our incoming class.

Mandatory Next Steps to Enroll:

Information on How to Visit Syracuse Law:

  • RSVP for an Admitted Student Day Program. 
  • If you were not able to make it to an Admitted Student Day, we are happy to schedule an individual visit.  Please email or call 315-443-1962 to schedule your visit.
  • If you cannot visit us in-person, take a step inside Dineen Hall through our virtual tour.

Meet Your Student Mentor
Each incoming 1L will be paired with an upper-class student mentor who will guide you through Orientation week and assist you during your 1L year. Your mentor will begin making contact with you in July.  This year's student mentor list will be updated in late Spring.

How to fund your legal education:


  • Listings of housing options in the Syracuse area
  • The Class of 2021 Facebook page will be available in late Spring to help you connect with your incoming classmates. This is a good platform to find a law student roommate and see where other law students will be living.

Orange Edge

  • Orange Edge was created to help prepare students for their first semester of law school. 
  • Students can enroll in the ten day program
  • The program will include daily classes, a legal writing workshop, small study group sessions and the ability to network with faculty, staff and other admitted students


  • Orientation is mandatory for all incoming students and will take place in August. More details on the 2018 Orientation schedule will be released this summer. 


Parking permits can be purchased ahead of time or during Orientation week. We recommend you purchase your parking permits as soon as possible. See details on parking permits.

NOTE: Campus West residents cannot apply online through MySlice.  Please see the information in the links below for submitting a parking application form if you will be a Campus West resident.

Health Insurance:

  • Syracuse University requires all full-time students to carry some form of ACA-compliant health insurance.  If you need to purchase health insurance (either through the university-sponsored plan or on your own), the cost of the policy may be included in your cost of attendance so that you may utilize federal student loan eligibility to help pay for your health insurance.  To request a budget adjustment, you may submit the Cost of Attendance Adjustment Request for Student Health Insurance. This mandatory fee may be waived if a student has adequate private health insurance coverage. If you have questions about the Syracuse University Health Insurance Policy and Plan, please visit the Student Health Insurance website, send an email to or call 315-443-9019.
