Transfer Students
In the case of transfer (advanced standing) applications, no more than thirty (30) semester hours of approved credit is transferable by applicants already attending other ABA-approved law schools.

Generally, only students who have a first-year academic record are eligible as transfers. In addition to the application for admission and the $55 application fee (payable by cashier’s check or money order), a statement regarding the reasons the applicant wishes to transfer must be submitted.

Additionally, a dean’s letter regarding the transfer applicant’s status at the prior law school and an official school transcript showing all first-year grades must be sent directly to the Office of Admissions. Transfer applicants must register with the Law School Admissions Council for an LSDAS report.
