International Candidates must complete the Rutgers Affidavit of Support Form for International Students in addition to the application for the School of Law. All foreign transcripts must be submitted through the LSAC JD Credential Assembly Service. This service is included in the LSDAS subscription fee. Your transcripts will be translated, if necessary, and evaluated. Please request that your TOEFL score be sent to LSAC. LSAC's TOEFL code for the JD Credential Assembly Service is 0058.
Please keep in mind that our law school does not accept credits in transfer from schools outside of the United States. You will be expected to have completed all of the requirements of a U.S. undergraduate degree in order to apply as a first-year student. If you do not have the equivalent of an undergraduate degree in the United States, you should contact the Rutgers Undergraduate Admissions Office at 856-225-6104 or visit our website for information about obtaining your undergraduate degree.

- Submit a law school application (or apply on-line) and non-refundable $65.00 fee.
