OrientationBegins mid August

An introduction to St. John’s University, a convocation event, a chance to interact with faculty for lunch or other fun activities, an opportunity to volunteer in the community around St. John’s, and time to meet your new classmates.

All students are required to attend all orientation sessions pertaining to their respective programs.

Introduction to Law

This course is a St. John’s exclusive and reflects our belief that we want every student to succeed. All 1Ls take this ungraded two week course prior to the start of their first semester classes. It includes instruction on how to read and brief cases to give new students a footing to traverse the unfamiliar ground of legal education, including case analysis and statutory analysis. The introductory course also presents the fundamentals of legal writing.

Fall Semester Begins

You will receive your Fall class schedule during orientation.

We will email you with information regarding orientation, book lists, and first homework assignments when it becomes available in late July.

Loan Refunds
If you are entitled to a refund due to an overpayment (which is most likely due to taking out more loans than there are charges on your St. John's account), you should complete a Student Refund Direct Deposit Form. This money may be used to purchase books, pay rent, etc.  Once the Bursar’s Office receives your refund request, your account will be reviewed and, if you are due a refund, a check will be mailed to you during the first week of classes. Please be prepared to pay for expenses prior to the first week of classes out of pocket, as the loan refund money will not be available until then.
