Transferring Divisions/Schools

Transferring Divisions

Any student who wishes to transfer from one division to another must submit a typed, signed petition (email or fax requests are unacceptable) to the Academic Status Committee.  Such transfers are not a matter of right.  If a student is permitted to transfer into another division, he/she will not be ranked in his/her new division until his/her final year of study.  Any student student who is eligible for a scholarship based upon class rank who transfers into another division forfeits his/her scholarship eligibility.     


Transferring Schools

Students who are in the process of transferring to another ABA-accredited law school and need a Letter of Good Standing must complete the Letter of Good Standing (Transfer) form. The form should be returned to the Law School Registrar's Office as soon as possible.  Transferring students must also complete the official withdrawal process.
