Important: Students who have taken a clinic and want to continue their work in a subsequent semester, do not register for the clinic through Helios. Instead, students apply to continue their work through the Advanced Clinical Program.

Clinical registration Preferencing

Most clinics are included in clinical registration preferencing, which is first in a series of registration phases. Students register for clinics through a preferencing process in Helios. Students may submit up to 6 preferences during clinical registration preferencing.

For clinics that are offered in more than one semester, each semester counts as a distinct clinical preference.  After clinical registration preferencing results are released, clinical add/drop opens in Helios.

2020-2021 Preferencing Deadlines

Opens: Monday, April 6 @ 9:00 am
Closes: Tuesday, April 7 @ 5:00 pm
Results: Friday, April 10 by 12:00 pm

  • Clinical registration takes place once a year in the Spring.
  • Registration is for the full upcoming academic year.

You can review the Registrar’s Office website for a full list of registration dates and events.

By Application Clinics

A handful of our clinical offerings have an application process for enrollment. Registration for these by-application clinics is not done through Helios. Each clinic has it’s own application process and application deadline. This information can be found in the clinics’ description in the HLS Course Catalog.

Clinical Course Component registration

All clinics are taken in conjunction with a required clinical course component. Unless otherwise noted in the clinic description in the HLS Course Catalog, when a student enrolls in a clinic, they are automatically enrolled in the required clinical course component by the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs. Clinic enrollment and clinical course enrollment are generally linked – if a student drops from a clinic, they will also be dropped from the clinical course and vice-versa. Students may participate in one clinic at a time. Once students have taken a clinic, they may not sign up for it again through Helios.
