New Student Checklist

As you prepare to join us at Emory Law, we have a checklist of actions and forms to complete.

  1. Final Transcript: The American Bar Association requires Emory Law to receive a final transcript indicating the date of your undergraduate degree conferral. If LSAC does not have this final transcript in your Credential Assembly Service (CAS) report, please have your final transcript sent to LSAC so that they can update the CAS report with the final version. If you are a foreign trained attorney, who plans to sit for a U.S. bar exam, request a copy of your LLB transcript to be sent to the bar examiners of the jurisdiction where you plan to practice. 
  2. Health Forms and Insurance Requirements: Complete all required student health information and health forms online with Emory University's online Health Services Portal
  3. Review our Laptop and Computer Recommendations: Emory Law students are required to own a computer. We recommend that you invest in a new notebook computer from a reputable manufacturer with a three-year warranty. Try to purchase a notebook computer that balances light weight and long battery life. Most exams are taken on computer and most faculty members permit students to take notes on computer in class. The law school supports both Mac and Windows systems.
  4. Complete the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students: All incoming Emory University students are required to complete the Sexual Assault Prevention for Graduate Students (SAP-G) education module. SAP-G is an online learning platform designed to empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect your years at Emory and beyond. It takes approximately 45 minutes to complete (closed captioning is available for video portions). You will receive an email to your Emory email address with instructions on how to complete the module.
  5. Set Up Your Network ID and Password: Your NetID allows you to access OPUS (Online Pathway to University Students) » Set up your Network ID here. 
  6. Log In to OPUS (Online Pathway to University Students): OPUS is your portal to student accounts, the registrar, and many other services at Emory. Explore OPUS and get familiar with the resources you will use as an Emory Law student. Submit a help request if you cannot log in or access OPUS. Include your first and last name and your Emory Net ID. DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR PASSWORD.
  7. Create an Emory Email Account: You will access your account using the same NetID and password that you use for OPUS access. Your email address is your NETID(at) 
  8. Upload Your Photo for Your EmoryCard (Student ID): The EmoryCard is the official ID Card of Emory University. It permits access to facilities and events and can be used to purchase goods and services at the university and at a wide range of merchants throughout the community. The image you upload must be on a white or solid neutral background. The deadline for uploading your photograph is July 12, 2024. More information regarding your EmoryCard can be found here.
  9. Duo Authentication: Many services at Emory require Duo authentication before you can log in from off-campus. Duo provides extra security by checking an app on your phone before allowing you to login to important Emory services, such as Email and OPUS. Learn more about Duo here and install the software on your phone. If you have questions about Duo or configuring Duo, please contact the University help desk at (404) 727-7777.
  10. Register for On-Campus Parking: If on-campus parking is needed, please register for Fall 2024 parking by using the parking transportation website.
  11. Student Accommodations: Emory University School of Law provides all persons an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from programs and services afforded to others. Please visit the Department of Accessibility Services website for information about our policies and procedures and to begin the process of registration.
