Three + Three B.A./J.D. Program
St. Thomas University and the School of Law offer a combined Bachelor’s Degree and Juris Doctor Degree. This is a six-year program that is offered to qualifying St. Thomas University undergraduate students who meet the following requirements: Students must begin the program in their first year of undergraduate studies.
Students must have a high school G.P.A. of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale and an ACT minimum score of 25, or S.A.T. minimum score of 1140. A formal application to the B.A./J.D. Program must be completed.
The student must agree to cooperate with the tracking and monitoring system which is designed to ensure the student meets the curricular requirements prior to applying to the School of Law.
Any major with 30 or more credits of electives allows the students to complete the general education and major requirements within 90 credits. This allows the students to take the remaining 30 elective credits at the law school. Upon successfully completing the first year of law school, students will be awarded the bachelor’s degree in the appropriate undergraduate discipline.
Students must fulfill all the criteria for admission into the law school.
Presently disciplines such as business administration, natural sciences, computer information systems and education do not enable students to participate in this joint degree program.
