Who can register for clinics through Banner?

Third year full-time students (3Ls) and fourth and third year part-time students (4LEs and 3LEs) can register for clinics through Self Service Banner (SSB). Second year full-time and part-time students (2Ls and 2LEs) cannot register online for clinics. 2Ls interested in clinics must contact Assistant Dean Jen Bretschneider to be registered in a clinic.

Are there enough spaces in clinicals for everyone?

We want to ensure that 4LE, 3L, and 3LE students are able to take at least one clinic during the academic year. Accordingly, the Priority Registration process will allow you not only to register in a clinic for Fall, but also to pre-register for a clinic in Spring.

For clinics available for registration through Banner, when will Priority Registration take place?

Priority Registration on Self Services Banner (SSB) for External Clinics and Externships will take place during the last week of March. This is before registration for your other courses, which will begin during the first week in April. 4LEs, 3Ls, and 3Ls will be able to register first in one clinic – either for Fall or Spring – and if they choose, in a second clinic.

Are there prerequisites for clinics, and how do I know when I have to be at my clinic?

Most clinics have prerequisites. Before you register for a clinic, check the online course schedule to make sure that you understand any prerequisites it may have and its time requirements. Self Service Banner (SSB) will check that you have taken the prerequisites and will prevent you from registering if you do not have them. SSB will not check your clinic meeting times against the meeting times of the other courses you will be registering for. It is entirely up to you to keep the meeting times of your clinic in mind as you register for your other courses.
