Transfer Student Information

Admission of transfer applicants is always discretionary. Only students in good academic standing and who have completed 24-30 semester hours from an ABA-approved law school will be considered for admission.

Transfer applications are accepted year-round and do not need to follow the regular JD application deadline. We understand transfer applicants may need to wait until their current semester grades are posted to apply.

Generally, a 2.75 GPA is necessary to qualify for admission. In addition to the application and personal statement, all transfer applicants must provide a copy of the law school report, as well as a complete official transcript and letter of good standing from the dean of the law school previously attended. Students who wish to transfer to The John Marshall Law School must complete an LSAC online application. There is no application fee.
