In order to qualify for the dual bachelor of arts/juris doctor (B.A./J.D.) 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 Rutgers School of Law-Camden, and acceptance into the College of Arts
and Sciences does not guarantee acceptance by the law school.
Dual B.A./J.D. students applying to the College of Arts and Sciences
must have (1) excellent SAT results and (2) a minimum 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 first year, provided that they have a
minimum GPA of 3.5 and that space is available in the program. Students
who are not admitted to the law school must complete additional coursework in the College of Arts and 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).
