Advanced Standing and Transfer Policy: Students in good standing who have completed one semester of study at an American Bar Association accredited law school may be admitted to Washburn University School of Law with advanced standing on such terms and conditions as the faculty may impose. A maximum of 30 hours may be transferred. A grade equivalent of C or better is required in order for course credits to be eligible for transfer.

Other than our established dual degrees (i.e., J.D./M.B.A., J.D./M.S.W.), and our Study Abroad Programs with the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands and the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus in Barbados, we have no agreements between schools governing the transfer of credit (articulation agreements).
