Transfer students are admitted in any semester upon completion of one full-year of law school. If you are a transfer student applying to Widener Law Commonwealth, you must submit a certified law school transcript, law school class rank, and letter of good standing from your prior law school.
In deciding how many transfer credits to accept for prior coursework, Widener Law Commonwealth reviews each transfer student’s law school transcript on a case-by-case basis. In no event will transfer credit be awarded If the student has not earned a grade of C, its equivalent, or better in the class to be transferred.
Once you’ve been admitted to Widener, please contact the Career Development Office as soon as possible to discuss procedures for our fall recruitment program; many key dates and deadlines occur over the summer.
If you have further questions about the transfer application process, please contact the Admissions Office.
