Your Capital University Law School email account will be created shortly after the second seat deposit deadline. When your account has been created, an email from our IT Department will be sent to your personal email address with detailed instructions on how to set-up your Capital Law account.

Beginning with the Fall 2024, all entering scholarships are guaranteed. So long as a student maintains good financial standing and is not otherwise dismissed, that student will keep their scholarship for three years of full-time study, or four years of part-time study.
We are proud to provide secure scholarships that our students can rely upon throughout law school. We find that these scholarships provide a greater sense of financial security and help foster and promote an increased sense of community.
If you had educational accommodations as an undergraduate or think you may need them in law school, please contact the Office of Accessibility Services at your earliest opportunity.
