Transfer Students

Students in good standing with one full year of law studies at an ABA-accredited institution, may apply for admission for the fall semester by July 1. Reasons for the transfer should be submitted in a personal statement with the application. If enrolled at another law school during the spring semester immediately prior to seeking admission to Rutgers School of Law-Camden, an official transcript of work completed during this last semester must be on file with the Office of Admissions before consideration is given. Transfer applicants must submit an official transcript, including rank in class, a letter from the applicant's previous institution that certifies the candidate's good academic standing and eligibility to continue in the legal education program and a letter of recommendation from one of their law professors. Students applying for the fall semester may not take summer classes at their law school as grades do not become available in time to render a decision.

Courses completed with a grade of C or better are transferable and a maximum of 41 credits may be transferred.

Students wishing to transfer mid-year must apply for visiting student status if all prior law school grades are not received by December. These applications are due November 1.

Visiting Students

Upperclass students at other accredited law schools may apply as visiting students for no more then one academic year's credit to transfer back to their degree-granting law school. Students must complete all requirements listed under "Transfer Students" and also must submit a letter from the applicant's dean both authorizing the student to attend Rutgers School of Law-Camden and acknowledging that the transfer credits will be accepted at the applicant's school.
