    *Official Transcripts for all college work, including law school courses, MUST be submitted to PCU before a student can be considered for admission.
    ** Academic Standing (e.g., good standing, probation, academic disqualification, administrative disqualification, etc.)

    Have you previously applied to or attended Pacific Coast University, School of Law?
    (If yes, please provide an explanatory addendum)
    Has any college or graduate or professional school ever placed you on academic probation, Honor Code probation or misconduct probation; issued to you a formal academic warning; dismissed you; or subjected you to any disciplinary action? PCU highly recommends that you review your personal transcripts before you answer this question. Ignorance of such information is not an excuse for inaccuracy or incompleteness.
    (If yes, please provide an explanatory addendum)
    Have you ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, or pleaded guilty or nolo contendere (“no contest”) to a felony or misdemeanor charge - - whether or not the charges were dismissed, the court entered a judgment of conviction, or the court imposed a sentence? A false “no” may have adverse effects on a law student when applying to the Bar. All state bars will review all documentation for entrance to the Bar including law school applications. Material differences between the Bar application and law school application may adversely affect the moral-fitness portion of the Bar application. PCU highly recommends a complete and thorough review of your personal history prior to submitting your law school application.
    (If yes, please provide an explanatory addendum)
    A positive moral character determination is one of several requirements for admission to the practice of law in California. If an applicant has been convicted of a crime, it may make them ineligible to practice law in the state of California. It is the applicant’s duty to inquire of the State Bar of California, if the applicant has a criminal record, whether their record will make the applicant ineligible to take the Bar Examination or practice law.

    How did you hear about PCU?

    Pursuant to Guideline 2.3(D) of the Guidelines for Unaccredited Law School Rules, PCU makes the following disclosures:

    “The method of instruction at this law school for the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree program is principally in physical classroom facilities.”

    “Students enrolled in the J.D. degree program at this law school who successfully complete the first year of law study must pass the First-Year Law Students’ Examination required by Business and Professions Code § 6060(h) and Title 4, Division 1, Chapter 1 Rule 4.3(I) of the Rules of the State Bar of California as part of the requirements to qualify to take the California Bar Examination. A student who passes the First-Year Law Students’ Examination within three (3) administrations of the examination after first becoming eligible to take it will receive credit for all legal studies completed to the time the examination is passed. A student who does not pass the examination within three (3) administrations of the examination after first becoming eligible to take it must be promptly disqualified from the law school’s J.D. degree program. If the dismissed student subsequently passes the examination, the student is eligible for re-enrollment in this law school’s J.D. degree program, but will receive credit for only one year of legal study.”

    “Study at, or graduation from, this law school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or to satisfy the requirements for admission to practice in jurisdictions other than California. A student intending to seek admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirements in that jurisdiction for admission to the practice of law.”

    I HEREBY CERTIFY that, to the best of my knowledge, all information provided in this application is accurate and complete. I understand that any material submitted will not be returned. I agree and promise that, if admitted, I will abide by the rules and regulations of Pacific Coast University, School of Law.
