      Applicants whose undergraduate degree was earned outside the United States must use the JD Credential Assembly Service. This service is an extension of the LSDAS. All foreign transcripts should be sent directly to the LSDAS.

      Applicants for the Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Dispute Resolution program must use LSAC's LL.M. Credential Assembly Service. Additional information on the LL.M. application process for international students can be found in Straus Institute's International Student section. Admissions questions for dispute resolution programs should be directed to the Straus Institute at [email protected].

      Financial Aid

      For information regarding Financial Assistance, please contact the Office of Financial Assistance at (310) 506-4633 or [email protected].

      In order to be eligible for Federal Loans you must be a U.S. Citizen or an eligible non-citizen. If you do not fall into one of these categories and wish to apply for private loans, you must have a co-signer who is a credit-worthy U.S. citizen.

      All documents required for Financial Aid should be submitted prior to receiving an Admissions decision. The deadline for need-based aid is April 1, 2010.

      The F-1 student visa status

      The Office of International Student Services (OISS) will assist international students in securing and maintaining their lawful nonimmigrant student status in the U.S. Upon admission to the School of Law and the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution, international students will receive the Form I-20 from the OISS. The Form I-20 is the document needed in order to make application for the F-1 (student) visa from abroad and be lawfully admitted to the U.S. in F-1 status. For those who are already in the U.S., the Form I-20 is needed to apply for a change of nonimmigrant visa status to F-1, or obtain permission to change schools in the U.S.

      In order to receive your Form I-20, you must submit evidence of financial support, indicating how you will meet your expenses for the academic year as well as for subsequent years of study. Please refer to the catalog and/or website for the estimated costs for your specific academic year. If an application for financial aid has been made, the OISS will prepare the Form I-20 as soon as verification of grants and/or loans has been received from the Office of Financial Assistance.

      While in F-1 status, you are required to maintain full-time enrollment status. On-campus employment is limited to 20 hours per week while school is in session. Off-campus employment is limited to required internships which are an integral part of your academic program. Accordingly, you should not look to employment as a means of support.

      Please return the International Student Data Form to the Office of Admissions, Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA 90263

        Pepperdine University School of Law is committed to the "highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership." These words from our mission statement capture the essence of this school - an extraordinary place where great things are being done, with even greater contributions to the law and to the country just around the corner.

        At their best, lawyers are ever disciplining and training themselves and those around them to serve in what, at its best, is a helping, caring profession. The study of law is a rigorous undertaking because our society entrusts lawyers with grave responsibilities. Knowledgeable, zealous representation of clients is an ethical obligation. But zealousness does not require mean-spiritedness. The mission of Pepperdine Law School calls upon students, faculty, administration, and staff to be of genuine service in building and encouraging, and that mission translates into an educational environment that produces effectively trained lawyers who know how to practice law as, in the words of St. Francis of Assisi, instruments of the Lord's peace.

        At Pepperdine Law School we strive to help everyone in the law school family define dreams and achieve aspirations as we seek to strengthen lives for purpose, service and leadership.

        Many blessings,
        Kenneth W. Starr
        Duane and Kelly Roberts Dean and Professor of Law
