Virtual Admitted Students Series

Our Admitted Students Series took place across three days in April. Attendees had the opportunity to learn all about Campbell Law. We had sessions on academic support, student life, supporting your future law student (geared towards family and friends of admitted students), Career & Professional Development, mock trial demonstration, and a prominent keynote speaker. Additionally, attendees were able to interact with panelists, including current students, and breakout rooms based on interests. 

If you were unable to join us, send an email to lawadmissions@campbell.edu for the recordings. 

Café con Josue

Join Mr. Josue Jimenez, Assistant Director of Admissions, every month starting in March. This series will be a virtual, informal session that will feature a different guest each month and give you the opportunity to ask any lingering questions about law school, life, or Campbell Law. Details will be sent out via email.

Resources

Below you will find FAQs surrounding Covid-19 and starting with us in the fall:

How will fall 2021 classes operate?

We do not yet know what classes will look like in the fall, but we are hoping for an in-seat return. 

How did Campbell Law operate classes during the pandemic?

During the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, we switched entirely to remote instruction. In the fall of 2020, we scheduled courses so that students would be in the building as limited as possible. We developed a hybrid in person/remote system.

In person classes are vital to our students, especially for first year students, but we understand that many may have life circumstances that prevent in person attendance or high risk factors. Students have the option to select in person or remote attendance at the beginning of the semester and can switch methods for the need to quarantine or upon showing good cause. 

Our professors teach in a hybrid format. Some students are in person and others are joining remotely. Be advised that our professors do not treat any students differently. You are just as likely to be called on remotely as in person. 

How is Campbell Law keeping the community safe from COVID-19?

Every student is required to complete a daily health assessment before entering the building. Upon entry, they must show a correctly time stamped message of approval from their health assessment. Should the assessment tell the student to stay home, they fill out an additional form that prompts the transition to remote classes until the quarantine period ends. 

All in the building are required to wear facemasks. Classrooms have been set up to optimize six feet social distancing. We have hand sanitizer stations all over the building. We also have thermometer readers at both entrances. We removed seats in classrooms to reduce class capacities. We also removed seats in common areas to maintain six feet social distancing.

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 2021, we will reevaluate your file for scholarship consideration. If you wish to defer, please contact us directly at cutright@campbell.edu 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?

Due to federal delays, your financial aid packaging may be a bit delayed. If you would like an idea of what your financial aid package will look like, please contact Ms. Lisa Clark (clarkl@campbell.edu). 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 with stay at home orders and social distancing?

This is a great question, and housing is a question we always get, even without covid-19. I encourage you to join our Campbell Law Student Housing Facebook Group. Many alumni and members of the community have places that they love to rent to law students. Additionally, this is a great place to find roommates (use your class Facebook page, too). Many apartment complexes are doing virtual tours as well. 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!

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. More information about registering for parking will be released soon.

Laptop Recommendations

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.

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 would 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. jldoe0311@email.campbell.edu.

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.

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.

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.

Accepting your Loans

You are now able to accept your 2021-2022 loans online via WebAdvisor. 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.

E-Refunds

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.
