Combined Bachelor's/Juris Doctor Program

In the 3+3 BA/JD program, high-achieving first-year undergraduate students are admitted simultaneously to the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (majoring in Criminology) and the College of Law. Students will complete their first three years in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and their final three years in the College of Law students will receive their BA from the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences after successful completion of their first-year of law school.

Reasons to Consider 3+3 Accelerated BA/JD Program

  • Students save one-year's worth of tuition, reducing their overall debt load
  • Students earn a law degree in a total of six years (three years undergraduate and three years in law school)
  • Students receive early (conditional) admission to the College of Law

  • Achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.35 by the end of their second year of study, and maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.35 in their third and final year of undergraduate study
