The Admissions Committee reviews applications from transfer students according to ABA Standards. A transfer applicant must meet the following:

  • The student currently attends a fully-approved ABA Law School.
  • The Law School general admissions application must be completed with "transfer applicant" marked accordingly.
  • The student is in "good standing" and "eligible to return" to that institution as documented by a Letter of Good Standing.
  • An official transcript from the current Law School must be submitted. An unofficial (student version) transcript may be submitted initially for the admissions decision and for registration purposes. Credits are only transferred from an official transcript.
  • Generally, a 2.5 law GPA is required for transfer consideration.
  • The CAS report must be submitted for review of the LSAT scores, undergraduate GPA, and two recommendation letters.
  • A personal statement explaining the reason for the intended Law School transfer must be submitted.

Please Note: A maximum of 30 credits may be transferred. Only credit from courses where a student earned a grade of C or better may be transferred.[1]

Barry Law uses one application for both incoming 1L students and Transfer students. Please apply using the 1L application and under the Enrollment section, checkmark "Transfer."
