Clinical Registration is for the entire year (fall, winter, and spring semesters). Clinical preferencing is on its own - you only preference clinics during the first phase of registration. Also please note that you may only participate in one clinic per semester, and may preference up to 6 clinics during clinical registration preferencing. If you are interested in taking a second semester at the clinic, you should apply through the Continuing Clinical Program. Once you have taken a clinic, you cannot sign up for it again through Helios.
The Clinics listed below are By Application and are not included in the first phase of clinical registration. Please see the list of By Application Clinics to learn about their application deadline. For more information on how to apply please visit the HLS Course Catalog and search for the clinic offering or contact Maggie Bay.
All clinics are taken in conjunction with a required academic course component for course credit. For most clinics, students do not register for the required academic course component through Helios. Once you register for a clinic, the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs will enroll you in the required course component, unless otherwise noted in the clinic's course description. Please read the course description carefully!
Add/drop for Clinics opens once the clinical registration results are posted (see below for more information).
Another way to register for clinics is through Add/Drop. Once the initial clinical registration has occured, online adding and dropping begins. You will be able to add open clinics, join the wait list for closed clinics, or drop clinics for which you are currently enrolled. Your chances of getting into a clinic are increased by bidding #1 on that clinic. However, don't be discouraged if you end up on a waitlist! If you are truly interested in a specific clinic, we encourage you to stick it out - waitlist do move!
Please note that clinic deadlines are earlier than non-clinical course deadlines.
Dropping after the applicable deadline will result in an "Withdrawal" (WD) on your academic transcript. You cannot drop a multi-semester (e.g. Fall-Winter) clinical course after the first semester's (Fall) drop deadline. Clinical work begins the first week of classes; therefore students cannot drop once clinical work has officially started.
Students can change their clinical credits by emailing Maggie Bay in the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs up until the following dates: Please make sure to check with your supervisor before requesting a change to your credits:
