All SSP participants are required to possess and conspicuously wear a UDM identification card while at UDM Law. The UDM identification card also serves as an access card that allows entry into the classroom spaces at UDM Law. SSP participants should stop in the Student Service Center (SSC) at UDM Law to have their photo taken for the card.  Participants are encouraged to have their photo taken the week of May 18.


SSP participants who wish to park in the UDM Law student parking lot may purchase a permit for $30.  Parking permits may be purchased in the UDM Law SSC. The permit allows access to all UDM student parking lots, including those located at the UDM McNichols Campus.
