I.T. Information - Blackboard, Email, WebAdvisor, Etc. More ▼
Buying a New Computer?
Campbell Law does not require that students have a laptop. Most of our students do use laptops, and we provide you with wireless internet, wireless printing, and power outlets at each seat in the classrooms. We do not have a specifications list. We do have, however, a wonderful IT department with folks who are willing to work with whatever platform you bring us. Campbell Law will supply you with Microsoft Office if you need it at no charge.
For instructions on accessing WebAdvisor, Blackboard, and Campbell email, please refer to the Computing Services Brochure. Note that your email address will contain the first letter of your first name, first letter of your middle name, last name, and day/month of birth. This is the default format. If you encounter an issue while setting up your user ID/email address, try substituting an underscore for your middle initial. If that doesn't work, please contact the HelpDesk. Their number is listed in the brochure. Close ▲
If you have not already done so, please request an official final transcript to be sent directly to:
Attn: Jannelle Sumner
Campbell University School of Law
225 Hillsborough Street, Suite 102
Raleigh, NC 27603
*Please note that although you have sent official transcripts to LSAC, Campbell Law is required to have an official final transcript on file for every student who enrolls. This is an ABA requirement. The version sent to LSAC will not suffice. One must be sent from your degree-granting institution directly to Campbell Law. We do not need transcripts from every school you attended, only from the school that awarded your bachelor's degree. Close ▲
1L Section Assignments
LRW section assignments are expected around August 1st.
* If you are a FLEX student or a parent with childcare related needs, please be in touch with the Registrar, Dr. Connie Shipman, at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding your section preferences. Close ▲

Financial Aid / E-Refunds More ▼
Accepting your Loans
If you haven’t completed your loan forms and online federal requirements yet, please do so by July 1st.
Grad Plus Loan Authorization Form
Stafford Direct Loan Authorization Form
ALL students who wish to receive a financial aid refund MUST sign up for direct deposit. You will need to log into your WebAccess account and locate CashNET in order to sign up. You only have to sign up for direct deposit once, it will roll over each year.
Financial Aid Disbursements
The Business Office generally processes financial aid refunds during the last week of August. After refunds are processed, it usually takes 24 to 48 hours for the funds to reach your bank account. Incorrect banking information entered into the portal will delay the process, so it is imperative that you enter all account information accurately. Close ▲
