A limited number of transfer students may be admitted each year depending on available space. The Admissions Committee decides on a case by case basis whether to accept any transfer credits. The application procedure is the same as for first year students except that the transfer applicant must also submit law school grades. No admission decision will be made until the school receives grades from the previous law school. Additionally, to graduate from Massachusetts School of Law, a transfer student must complete at least 60 credit hours at Massachusetts School of Law.
