In order to qualify for the program, students will have to
meet admissions requirements for both schools. Students should note that
separate applications are required for the Camden College of Arts and Sciences and the
School of Law–Camden, and acceptance into the College of Arts and Sciences and/or
the B.A./J.D. program does not guarantee acceptance by the law school.
Dual B.A./J.D. students applying as freshmen to
the College of
Arts and Sciences must have (1) a minimum critical reading and writing
600 each or combined (critical reading, writing, and mathematics) SAT of
and (2) a high school grade-point average of 3.75 (on a four-point
scale). Students who do not meet these initial criteria may still apply
for consideration for the program at the end of their freshman year at
Rutgers University–Camden, provided that they have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and that
available in the program. ACT scores may also be submitted for
consideration. Given the intensive nature of the program, admission is
not available for transfer students. Students who are not admitted to
the law school must complete additional coursework in the College of
Sciences in order to graduate.
After matriculation in law school and upon the student's
successful completion of the eight required first-year courses, the bachelor's
degree will be awarded. The juris doctor will be awarded upon successful
completion of the required 84 course credits of law school work and all other
J.D. requirements (typically after three years as a full-time student at the law school).
