Transfer & Visiting Students
A transfer student is one who has attended another American Bar Association approved law school and transfers to the University of Toledo College of Law as a degree candidate.
Toledo Law may admit as a transfer student one who has been enrolled in another American Bar Association approved law school and is in good standing there. The College of Law ordinarily admits students as transfers only after they have completed one full academic year (or its equivalent) of law school work.
A transfer student may receive advanced standing credit for work in which the student earned a grade of at least C or its equivalent at another law school. In determining whether to award advanced standing credit, the character of the courses previously studied, the comparability of those courses and credits to the curriculum and requirements of the College of Law, and the grades received in those courses will be considered, to the end of preserving the plan of instruction and standards of this College. For more information regarding transfer students, please see our Academic Rules.
To apply for admission as a transfer student you must submit the following:
- A completed electronic application and Credential Assembly Service Report. Visit LSAC.org
