Transfer and Visiting Students
Under limited circumstances and to the extent that space is available; the University of Connecticut School of Law may admit a small number of transfer or visiting applicants each year. In deciding whether to grant admission, the School will consider, among other factors, the circumstances which require the student's presence in the Hartford area, the student's outstanding record of accomplishment at his or her law school, and the extent to which space is available. In addition to grades received in first year courses, class rank is an important indicator of first year academic success, and is considered along with letters from law school faculty in making application decisions. Applicants to transfer or visit should complete the transfer and visiting student application forms on this website, using the specific directions for transfer and visiting students. The application deadline for Fall 2013 is July 1, 2013.
Transfer applicants who have completed no more than one full year at an ABA-accredited law school are considered for transfer admission. Students who have earned more than 32 law school credit hours are ineligible for transfer to the University of Connecticut School of Law. Transfer applicants may apply to either the Day or Evening Division. Please note that credit will only be transferred for grades of "C" or better, and that each course's transferability will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Transfer students must abide by the transcript evaluation, any enrollment conditions, and must complete all required courses.
Visiting applicants must receive written permission to visit from their law schools, and the school letters should set forth the reasons for and the specific terms and conditions of the proposed visit. Applicants to visit must demonstrate a special circumstance requiring the visit. Visitors are ineligible to apply to transfer to this Law School. Students may visit for a maximum of two semesters or 32 credits, whichever comes first, or fewer, if specified by the home law school. Any additional courses or credits beyond those specified in the visiting letter require additional written permission from the student's law school before the visitor can register or attend classes. The release of an official transcript to the visitor's law school will be given only to students in good standing at the University of Connecticut School of Law.
