Who May Apply
Am I eligible to apply to transfer to Georgetown Law?
Applicants may only apply if, by the time they matriculate, they will have taken only two semesters worth of classes. In rare circumstances, applicants who have completed 3 part-time semesters by the time they will matriculate, may apply.
Georgetown Law will only accept transfer applications from those who will have completed their first year of study at the time of matriculation into Georgetown Law. Applicants who will have earned in excess of 35 credits by the time of matriculation into Georgetown Law are not eligible to apply as a transfer student. Students who will have earned 36 credit hours or more at the time of matriculation into Georgetown Law are eligible to apply as a Visiting Student.
Please be advised that the Law Center will accept for transfer a maximum of 31 semester hours of academic credit from an ABA-approved law school. Credit is not usually granted for law school courses beyond the first year. For more information about academic requirements for transfer students please review the Georgetown Law Student Handbook.
May I apply for spring admission?
Typically, only students who initially entered law school in the spring of the prior year may apply for spring admission. In rare circumstances, applicants who have completed 3 part-time semesters by the time they will matriculate, may apply for spring admission.
May part-time students apply to transfer into the full-time program?
May I apply to transfer Early Action based upon my fall grades alone?
Yes. However, the Admissions Committee typically will not consider an application for admissions until an applicant has 3 reported grades on his or her transcript.
