Enrolling in the Program
Enrolling in the Center for Student Legal Services program is simple! Every semester, including summer sessions, the $12 fee appears on each student's tuition bill on the student’s OHIO Portal. The cost of the program is $12 per term and students must choose to pay or waive the fee at the beginning of every term. Paying the fee entitles a student to all of the services that CSLS has to offer. Once the fee has been paid, a student essentially has "legal insurance" and can utilize any of our services as many times as he or she needs over the course of the term. Students have the first three (3) weeks of each term to waive the fee from their tuition bill. After that window closes, our office cannot "un-enroll" students or issue refunds. A student can, however, re-enroll at any point during the term if the fee was waived at the beginning of the term. If a student who had waived our fee re-enrolls in our program because they need assistance with a legal issue that occurred before their re-enrollment, they will be subject to a $25 consultation fee and additional case fees charged at the attorney's discretion. We strongly discourage students from waiving the fee and highly recommend that they re-enroll if the fee was accidentally waived. Should a student require legal assistance for any reason, paying the $12 fee and enrolling in our "legal insurance" program could potentially save him or her hundreds of dollars in case fees.
If a student waived the fee at the beginning of the term, but would like to re-enroll, he or she will need to complete a re-enrollment form and pay the $12 student legal services fee directly to CSLS. Payment can be made by using the PayPal link below or by paying with cash/check at the CSLS office. The re-enrollment form can be downloaded from the button below or it can be retrieved from the CSLS office. When a student is re-enrolling, their re-enrollment will not be considered complete or effective until CSLS is in receipt of both the re-enrollment form and the $12 fee.
Please contact CSLS if there are further questions about re-enrollment.
