A note from the Campbell University Bursar’s Office
We will not begin transferring funds for books until August. Students are welcome to send the requests now and we will hold them but no funds will be placed on the cards until August.
Below you will find FAQs surrounding Covid-19 and starting with us in the fall:
How will fall 2022 classes operate?
We are planning on in-person courses in the fall. This is always subject to change in accordance with pandemic conditions. However, we have successfully navigated 2020-2021 academic year in-person, as well as the 2022 fall semester in-person.
Do you allow deferrals?
Yes. We understand that these are strange and unpredictable times. If you would like to defer your acceptance until the next academic year, we can do so. Understand that any scholarships awarded are not eligible for deferral, but once you let us know of your intent to enroll by February 2023, we will reevaluate your file for scholarship consideration. If you wish to defer, please contact us directly at email@example.com to request.
Do I need to pay my seat deposit to defer?
No. We strongly encourage you to, but it is not required.
My school has moved to pass/fail grades. Will this impact my admission?
No, not unless there are extreme circumstances. We understand that universities are handling grading in all different manners and we also understand that there may be other stressors impacting your performance. Should you receive all failing grades, then we may need to reevaluate your admission, but otherwise, pass/fail grades will not impact your admission.
I intended on taking the LSAT-Flex to improve my score for scholarship purposes. Can I still do this?
Absolutely! You can still do so to raise your score and scholarship eligibility.
What about financial aid? How can I get an idea about financial aid coverage?
If you would like an idea of what your financial aid package will look like, please contact Ms. Lisa Clark (firstname.lastname@example.org). While we don’t have exact numbers just yet, we can create an estimated package for you.
I’m committed to Campbell, but now how do I find housing if I’m not familiar with Raleigh?
This is a great question, and housing is a question we always get. I encourage you to join our Campbell Law Student Housing Facebook Group. Use your class GroupMe page, too. Last, if you’ve narrowed it down to a couple of places but have questions, post those in the housing group, because I guarantee other students have had the same questions or have the experience to answer them. You can also always reach out to us!
Last, if you’re new to Raleigh, our Getting to Know Raleigh guide will help. This guide was created from feedback from our current students.
What about parking? What is that like for students?
As downtown continues to grow, parking continues to become more limited. We are committed to making sure that our students can park. We do not require purchasing parking, so if you live close enough to Campbell Law, there is no need. Our designated parking areas are within walking distance to Campbell Law.
Buying a New Computer?
For instructions on accessing WebAdvisor, Blackboard, and Campbell email, please refer to the Computing Services Guide . Note that your email address will contain the first letter of your first name, first letter of your middle name, last name, and day/month of birth. This is the default format. If you encounter an issue while setting up your user ID/email address, try substituting an underscore for your middle initial. If that doesn’t work, please contact the HelpDesk at email@example.com.
Microsoft Office 365: Office 365 Pro will allow you to access Office products from up to 5 computers and also up to 5 mobile devices. You will also have the option of accessing the Office products from any computer through Office.com – without needing any software on the computer you are using.
To install Office 365, you must create a Microsoft Live account using your Campbell email address, i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org.
For mobile devices, you can install from either the App Store for Apple devices or the Play Store for Android devices. They will both use the Microsoft Live account you created when setting up the software on your laptop or desktop computer.
We have created instructions for the process and placed them on the IT Help page. It is important that you uninstall any existing versions of Office that we have provided you, before installing Office 365 Pro. This process will not affect any saved documents on your hard drive.
We would encourage you to continue to use Google Drive for storing documents and this Google plugin will make that very easy from within Office applications, like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint – https://tools.google.com/dlpage/driveforoffice.
At any time, please come by and see us in Suite 440 if you need additional assistance.

Parking is available for all students. 1Ls park in the Powerhouse Deck. The university charges a parking fee of $450/year which is billed to your account.
Parking and Locker Information
We will have locker assignments and keys for pick up during Orientation in the Pope Foyer. After registering for parking, you will be issued a Campbell Law parking sticker and assigned a lot or deck to park in for the year.
Powerhouse Deck – 513 West Jones Street (at corner of Jones and West Streets): Available Monday through Friday, from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm. Access entrance closest to railroad track and proceed to the top of the deck. Campbell is allotted spaces on the top two levels. Park in spaces that you can see sky above your car, either on the top deck or along the ramp leading to the top deck. When that level is full drop down to the level immediately below. Parking in other locations in the deck will result in a ticket or booting.
Starting each day Monday through Friday at 3:45 pm and all day Saturday and Sunday, you will be allowed to park in the garage below the Law School building (entrance off Morgan Street), and on the upper deck near the security entrance.
Please e-mail any questions to Mr. Ranieri email@example.com.

If your name has changed, please use the form below to change your name. Note that your email address will remain the same.
The law library is a vital part of your law school education. You will meet the librarians and receive an introduction to the library during orientation. In the meantime, please look over this guide to familiarize yourself with the resources available to you.
Accepting your Loans
You will be notified by the University’s Office of Financial Aid once your loans are awarded and ready to be accepted. This notification will be delivered via your Campbell University email. You may view a checklist of loan requirements on WebAdvisor.
All refunds for the Fall semester for everyone will be processed through TouchNet; therefore, you will need to sign up for e-refunds via the TouchNet portal. Please have this completed by August 1st . The e-refund set up guide will walk you through the process step by step.
Financial Aid Disbursements
The Bursar’s Office generally processes financial aid refunds during the last week of August. After refunds are processed, it usually takes 24 to 48 hours for the funds to reach your bank account. Incorrect banking information entered into the portal will delay the process, so it is imperative that you enter all account information accurately.
Questions? Please contact Lisa Clark, Asst. Director of Financial Aid, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919.865.5990.
