The Boyd School of Law accepts applications to the LL.M. program from candidates who are not U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents. International applicants are required to comply with all admission and application procedures, including demonstrating English proficiency by taking the IELTS or TOEFL exam and have their foreign transcripts evaluated through LSAC or WES.
It is the responsibility of applicants to ensure that an official transcript from each institution they have attended is sent by that institution to LSAC or WES for evaluation. Please do not have transcripts sent directly to the Boyd School of Law.
International applicants must also certify that they have sufficient financial resources to pay their expenses during their studies at UNLV, as required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Applicants will need to complete the Confidential Financial Certification form at the point of deposit. Documentation necessary for applicants to obtain a student visa is issued only after a completed, properly verified Confidential Financial Certification form has been submitted.
Acceptance and matriculation of international applicants are conditional on the applicant meeting all federal, state, and University requirements that apply to international students. All international students attending UNLV must enroll for university health insurance, the fee for which will be automatically charged to their account each semester.
For general information on matters pertaining to international students matriculating at UNLV, applicants may contact the Office of International Students & Scholars at (702) 895-0143.
