Transferring Applicants

Shepard Broad College of Law considers transfer applications from candidates who have completed at least one academic year at a law school approved by the American Bar Association. Candidates for full-time status must have completed at least 27 semester hours of credit and candidates for part-time status must have completed a minimum of 18 semester hours of credit. Transfer applicants must have received a baccalaureate degree prior to beginning law study and must be in good academic standing.

There is no GPA or class rank in law school that assures transfer admission; the admissions committee wishes to see a law school record that evidences academic excellence. Seats for transfer students are limited and the number varies from year-to-year.

Transfer Application Deadlines

Application files should be completed at least one month prior to the start of the semester for which admission is sought.

To receive credit, a transfer student must earn the greater of a C or the minimum grade their prior law school requires as its graduation average.
