College of Law

Transfer Students

Toledo Law may admit you as a transfer student if you have been enrolled in another American Bar Association (ABA) approved law school where you completed a minimum of 15 credit hours and remain in good standing.


Transfer Credits

As a transfer student, you may receive advanced standing credit for work in which you earned at least a C grade 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 while preserving the plan of instruction and standards of the college. Review "Article II: Section C" of our academic rules for more information.


Application Deadline

Your transfer application should be submitted at least 30 days before the semester start date in which you plan to enroll. Review our law academic calendar for semester start dates.


Application Steps

  1. Complete the online J.D. application and Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Report on the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) site. Select either the spring or fall J.D. application, then select "Transfer" under application type.
  2. Include two letters of recommendation.
  3. Submit one official transcript from your previous law school that includes grades for your most recent enrolled term.
  4. Provide a letter from the dean of your previous law school stating that you are in good standing and eligible to continue there.
  5. You may also submit additional information or statements that you believe would be useful to Toledo Law in making our admission decision. We may require supplemental materials, including course descriptions for all completed legal course work.

If you intend to transfer your current financial aid package, contact Tara Thompson, assistant director of financial aid, as soon as possible for assistance.
