Requesting a Dean's Letter/Certification

Some law schools require a Dean's Letter/Dean's Certification 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. Each of Penn's colleges maintains a different process for requesting a Dean's Letter, so please follow the link below for your school for instructions about how to request this document.

In all cases, this Dean's Letter/Dean's Certification will take the place of individual law school forms, as Penn as an institution does not complete these forms.

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