TAKE THE NEXT STEPS IN THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS...
1. CAREFULLY REVIEW YOUR ADMISSION DOCUMENTS
After reviewing your admission documents,
notify the admissions office of any updates
to your application including character and
fitness issues and contact information.
2. LOG IN TO THE ADMISSIONS PORTAL
The admitted students’ website is a secure online
portal where you’ll find resources to move you
along in the enrollment process. You will be able
to pay your seat deposit online using this portal.
Be sure to have your student ID number handy.
3. APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID
Admitted students are encouraged to complete the
FAFSA online as soon as possible. Our Financial Aid
Office helps eligible students obtain federal and private
student loans. Learn more about the financial aid process.
4. ACCEPT OUR INVITATION TO VISIT CAMPUS
The best way to see yourself here is by visiting. Look
for our invitation to visit campus after being admitted.
In March, we host Preview Weekend, which is an event
designed especially for admitted students and their
families to learn about student life, clinic and externship
opportunities, career services, financial aid, and more! It’s
also a great opportunity to get to know our community
and meet faculty, current students, and alumni.
If you are unable to attend our Preview Weekend,
please feel free to schedule a visit at your convenience.
You’ll have a chance to meet with a counselor, tour
the campus, and sit in a first year law class.
5. SCHEDULE AN ADMISSION COUNSELING PHONE MEETING
We are committed to helping make this transition
as smooth as possible. Connect with your
admissions counselor for an overview of what
it’s like to be a student at California Western.

6. GET TO KNOW THE NEIGHBORHOOD
With its great weather, miles of sandy beaches, and
major attractions, San Diego is an ideal place to live
and study law. California Western is located on the
northern edge of downtown San Diego. The school
is in close proximity to residential communities, the
downtown business district, courts, law firms, museums,
shopping, and restaurants. Visit our housing page to learn more about San Diego neighborhoods and how to find housing.
7. MAKE IT OFFICIAL, SUBMIT YOUR DEPOSIT!

choice of law school, log in to the admitted
students’ portal to pay your seat deposit online.
