The School of Law welcomes transfer applications from students who will have completed their first year at another ABA-approved law school. There are two transfer options available:

Early Transfer
If accepted, early transfer students will begin upper level coursework when the Summer Quarter commences at the end of the May. This will allow students to utilize the Center for Co-op and Professional Advancement to prepare for and obtain a co-op for the fall quarter. Applicants will be notified of the Admission Committee’s decision shortly after their files are complete.

Regular Transfer
If accepted, regular transfer students will begin upper level coursework in the Fall Quarter. Applicants will be notified of the Admission Committee’s decision shortly after their files are complete, which must include second semester grades.

To apply as a transfer student, submit the following:

  • Application by deadline (March 1 for Early Transfer, July 1 for Regular Transfer*)
  • $75 application fee 
  • Dean's letter of good standing
  • Résumé
  • Transfer statement 
  • Current CAS report that includes LSAT score(s), two letters of recommendation, one of which must be from a law school faculty member, and all required transcripts

 *This is the priority deadline for transfer students. Applications received after July 1 will be reviewed on a space-available basis.
