Dean’s Certification Letter

Some law schools require a Dean’s Certification Letter  from each of your undergraduate and graduate institutions where you are/were a full-time student. This is not always the case, so please read individual law school’s admissions materials carefully to determine if this is necessary, particularly when answering application questions regarding your record of disciplinary action at Penn. Each of Penn’s colleges maintains a different process for requesting a Dean’s Certification Letter, so follow the link below for your school for instructions on how to request this document. It is also a good idea to call the Dean’s Office directly to confirm this process.

In some cases, this Dean’s Certification Letter will take the place of individual law school forms.

Note: If you attended any undergraduate (or graduate) institution other than Penn, you will likely need a separate Dean’s Certification Letter to submit to law schools. Please check with that institution’s pre-law advisor and/or Dean’s Office for the correct procedural information.
