Transfer Students

Students chatting and studying outside of Hotung

Georgetown Law reviews transfer applications from current full-time or part-time students at ABA-accredited law schools for both Spring and Fall semester admission. Transfer applicants are considered for admission to the second year class on a space available basis. Transfer applicants are considered for either the full-time division, part-time division or "both."

Georgetown Law will only accept transfer applications from those who will have completed their first year of study (full-time or part-time) 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, however, 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.      

Please refer to the left-hand navigation for more information about who may apply, application requirements, how to apply and application deadlines. There you will also find frequently asked questions and transfer contact information.


Regular Action Transfer applicants: We encourage you to submit your application as early as possible, even if your Spring semester grades are not yet available. You may submit your law transcript separately once all of your Spring grades become available.
