Bachelor's Degree/J.D. Degree Program with Rutgers Law School


The 3+3 Program enables highly qualified students to complete both a bachelor's degree and a graduate law degree (juris doctor, or J.D.) in six years, rather than the usual seven. The 3+3 Program is open to Rutgers students across all three of the university's Schools/Colleges of Arts and Sciences: in Camden, Newark, and New Brunswick.

Students participating in this accelerated program complete their first year of law school courses during their fourth undergraduate year. To prepare for this fourth year, they must complete all undergraduate course requirements in General Education and in their chosen major and compile at least 91 credits during their first three years. The 29 credits required during the first year of law school count toward both degrees.

Normally, 3+3 Program students are awarded their bachelor's degrees at the end of their fourth year and are eligible to participate in the College/School of Arts and Sciences' graduation ceremonies at that time. The juris doctor is typically awarded after two additional years as a full-time law student on successful completion of the required course credits in Rutgers Law School and of all other J.D. requirements.

For further information about the 3+3 Program--including the application process, requirements, tuition, and curriculum--please contact Rutgers Law School admissions.
