Office of Student Affairs

Office of Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) provides comprehensive support for law students. This office is where students conduct most of their daily business -- turning in Legal Research and Writing assignments, registering for classes, scheduling rooms for student organization events, and rescheduling examinations -- just to name a few. The OSA also oversees registration for law courses, administering examinations, and Commencement in the spring.

Friendly Reminders

Departmental Moves on Campus/Campus Map

This has been a busy summer on campus.  The planning and implementation of the departmental moves were made with a goal in mind to streamline processes for students, staff, and faculty.  For example, the Financial Aid Department and the University Registrar's Office have moved from the Putnum University Center to the first floor of Waller Hall.  This move better serves students so there's only one place they need to go for financial aid, registration, and student account issues.  Click here to view a campus map which highlights the departmental moves that mostly affect students.


Class Attendance Tracking. 

The attendance tracking in JASON is recorded weekly as we receive attendance sheets from the faculty; however, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to track attendance, as reporting in JASON may not always be up to date.

If you find a discrepancy in the records (for example, if you were marked absent on a day that you were in class), email or contact the professor to ask them to notify the OSA to correct the attendance date in question.  We can only make a correction if the request is from the Professor.  If you know you were absent on a certain date, but JASON doesn't reflect it, please contact either the professor or the OSA to see if the attendance sheets have been turned in for the class in question.

OSA Notary Policy Change. 

Effective July 1, 2013, the OSA notary services are limited to WUCL students and graduates for purposes of application to state bar examinations.
