Required Graduation Check for All 2Ls

Important, time-sensitive information for 2L’s (those planning to be Dec. 2017 or May 2018 graduates):

The ABA wants to make sure our students are aware of our graduation requirements in order to make informed decisions on what courses to take. In light of this, we are starting a new process for checking graduation requirements for 2L’s before registering for fall semester of 3L year (In the case of a Dec. 2017 grad, it will be to check requirements before registering for your last semester at NIU College of Law).

So, to be able to register for fall 2017 courses you must:
  1. Print off and read the attachment you received in your z-id email. This is your “Graduation Requirement Checklist.” 
  2. Email Julie ( to make an appointment to quickly go over the checklist. Please give a couple timeslots where you would have about 15 minutes free (Bring checklist to the appointment). 
    • Julie will be available for appointments April 7 – 21, 8:00 a.m.- Noon & 1-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday
    • Appointments should only take a few minutes.
Again, this IS required. If you have not completed this process before fall 2017 registration opens, a hold will be put on your MyNIU account and you will not be able to enroll until this requirement is satisfied.
