  The School of Law - Newark 2004-2006 Admissions Transfer Students: Admission With Advanced Standing  

Transfer Students: Admission with Advanced Standing

A student who has successfully completed at least one full academic year (but not more than one and one-half years of full-time study or 42 credits) at another ABA-accredited law school may apply for admission with advanced standing to either the day or evening law study program. Applications are accepted for the fall and spring terms. Persons attending unaccredited law schools do not qualify for transfer with advanced standing.

The transfer applicant must submit the following:

1. an application for admission

2. the application fee of $50

3. an official undergraduate transcript

4. a copy of the LSAT score

5. one recommendation

6. a statement of good academic standing

7. an official final transcript including at least one full year of law school work

Credit may be granted for courses in which the student has either earned a C or better on a letter grade system or earned a grade above the lowest passing mark on any other grading system. Residence credit may be granted for terms in which the minimum number of credits has been earned. The amount of course and residence credits awarded varies from case to case. Transfer students are not able to determine an anticipated date of graduation until after receipt of the formal advanced standing statement. A transfer student receives credit for all courses taken at the law school from which he or she is transferring, even when no equivalent course exists within the Rutgers curriculum. Transfer students must take all required courses in the Rutgers curriculum unless excused by the associate dean. In all cases, the final year must be spent at Rutgers.
