    Enrollment Instructions

    Log in to Enroll and Pay 

    Visit the Enroll & Pay website.

    Enrollment

    Enter the 5-digit class number associated with each class and follow the prompts through to the shopping cart. Search the Schedule of Classes for up to date information.

    Enrollment Appointment

    Enrollment appointments are viewable on Enroll & Pay.

    Criminal Prosecution Field Placement Program, Elder Law Field Placement Program, Field Placement Program, Legal Aid Clinic and Project for Innocence will require a permission number to enroll. These specific field placements or clinics will provide the Registrar with a list of people who should be enrolling. The Registrar will email those students to give them a permission number for the class. Field Placement Program codes will be distributed by email after Professor Glenn Jewell gives approval.

    Final Exams

    The final exam schedules are posted on the Exam Information page on the KU Law website. Choose your course schedule mindful that you may have several consecutive final examinations and that relief from such a situation cannot be guaranteed to any student. 

    Waitlists

    During spring 2024, main enrollment waitlists will be online in Enroll & Pay.

    Upcoming 3Ls will be given priority since they will be the first to enroll. If you choose to use the waitlist, keep in mind we’ve identified a few glitches: If you sign up on a waitlist, the computer will automatically enroll you in the class if there is an opening and will not give you any notice. The computer will not enroll you if you are already enrolled in a class that conflicts with the waitlisted class. If you have a hold, the computer will not pull you from the waitlist. Since you will be automatically enrolled in the class if there is an opening, you will be responsible to check your schedule online regularly and make any adjustments necessary.
