Transfer Students Law School Admissions

Transfer Students Law School Admissions

Transfer Students

Transfer students from other accredited law schools may be admitted to WMU-Cooley Law School if they are in good standing with their law schools, their programs are comparable, and they meet WMU-Cooley's definition of good standing.

Credits for courses with grades less than satisfactory (C or 2.0) are not transferable. WMU-Cooley typically permits students to transfer no more than 30 credit hours. Students may be able to transfer up to 45 credit hours with permission.

Transfer students are eligible for scholarships based on their entering credentials or their class rank at the school from which transfer occurs - whichever is higher.
