Apply for Admission

WMU-Cooley Apply

Semesters start in September, January or May

Find your excellence. We know you have the ability to do great things. Western Michigan University Cooley Law School operates on a rolling admissions system. Applications are processed as they are received. Once Admissions has received all required materials, a decision is made, and you will be informed of your status. Students who start classes in September will be on the track for primarily morning classes (unless a student chooses our Lansing campus weekend program), students who start in January will primarily be on the afternoon track for classes, and students who start in May will be on the evening track. Admissions decisions are based on the School's predictive, outcome-based admissions process.

WMU-Cooley will review LSAT scores from June and July for fall admission consideration. Please do not wait for your score to file your application and begin the process if you are interested in fall. You can also file your application now for January or May. For a preliminary review for admission and scholarship, click here
