Application Instructions (2L Students)
The Blewett School of Law will accept transfer applications only from students attending an ABA-accredited law school.
Admission is granted on a space-available basis. Transfer applicants will be evaluated on the same criteria applied to entering students, with the additional consideration of the applicant’s academic performance in the current law school, the quality of that law school and the purpose of seeking to continue legal studies at the Blewett School of Law.
The deadline to apply for transfer is July 1. No decisions will be made with regard to transfer applications until the applicant’s complete first-year law school transcript is received. No transfer applications will be accepted after July 1.
Register for LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS) and follow the instructions to ensure a complete application.
Transfer students must complete at least 45 credit hours of law study in residence to earn a degree of juris doctor from the Blewett School of Law.
Admitted transfer applicants must meet with the Director of Admissions to complete a Transfer Credit Evaluation form. Every effort will be made to transfer credit from the same or similar courses to meet requirements.
Transfer credits and grades will be considered in calculating a student’s grade point average and class rank will be determined after completing one semester at the Blewett School of Law. Grades and GPA will be transferred and calculated as close as possible based on the following scale: A+/A: 4.0; A-:3.7; B+: 3.3; B: 3.0; B-: 2.7; C+: 2.3; C: 2.0; C-: 1.7; D:1; F:0.
