More about Transferring
Creighton School of Law gives first consideration to transfer applicants with superior credentials. Only grades of C or better from an ABA-accredited law school will be considered for transfer. We will not accept more than three semesters of residency and no more than 45 semester hours of credit from an ABA-accredited law school. There is no application deadline for transfer students, however, your application will not be considered until we receive an official transcript that includes your grades for your most recent coursework. You must meet all of the Creighton graduation requirements in order to earn a degree.
Steps to Transferring
- The first step to pursuing your law degree at Creighton School of Law is to apply online through the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). Be sure to select that your application is for Advanced Standing (Transfer).
- With your application, include a personal statement indicating your reasons for wanting to transfer to Creighton.
- Make sure your Credential Assembly Service report is current with LSAC, and purchase a report to be sent to Creighton.
- Submit two letters of recommendation, ideally through the Credential Assembly Service. Note: these letters should be current, not the same letters used to apply to law school initially. Preferably, at least one of these letters would come from a current law school professor.
- Submit an official transcript from your current law school.
- Submit a letter of good standing from your current law school.
