Frequently Asked Questions - Flex Time
Flex-time is an enrollment option designed to give entering students the flexibility of taking a reduced course load of eight or nine credit hours each semester and having up to five years to complete the requirements for the JD degree. On their application, applicants should indicate if they are interested in the flex-time option.
The flex-time option is ideal for non-traditional students, professionals with flexible employment status who wish to maintain some level of employment while carrying a slightly reduced course load or parents of school-age children who have additional responsibilities to tend to while in law school.
The flex-time program is not night school. Flex-time students attend class during the weekdays alongside full-time students. There are no weekend classes.
