The Creighton University School of Law welcomes applications from transfer students.  Only applicants who have completed their entire first year of law school are eligible for transfer consideration.  First consideration will be given to transfer applicants with superior credentials.  In addition, no more than three semesters of residency and no more than forty-five semester hours of credit may be transferred from an ABA accredited law school. Only grades of C or better, received from another accredited law school, may be transferred. Transfer students must meet all the Creighton graduation requirements in order to earn a degree.

There is not an application deadline for transfer students.  Before the Admissions Committee will review a transfer application, however, we must receive an official transcript that includes grades for your most recent coursework.
