Application and Important Dates

Pre-Law Summer Institute for American Indians and Alaska Natives

Dates & Deadlines

Following are the deadlines and other important PLSI dates. Again, please note that the deadline dates given are dates that the documents must be received by the PLSI, not the postmark dates. You may fax documents (except for transcripts) in order to meet any deadline, but we must receive the hard copies prior to the start of the Institute.

Because the PLSI is funded on a year-to-year basis, the dates and deadlines given are contingent on money being available for the program.
