The 3+3 BA/JD program enables academically talented University of Arizona undergraduates to complete their Bachelor of Arts in Law and the Juris Doctor in as few as six years of study. The program is open to University of Arizona undergraduates majoring in law with a minimum 3.3 overall GPA.
Eligible students apply to the James E. Rogers College of Law during the second semester of their junior year. Accepted students matriculate at the College of Law following their junior year and take 30 graduate law credits their senior year as first year law students. They spend their fifth and sixth years completing the remaining 58 JD units.
To be eligible to apply through the UA 3+3 BA/JD program, you must:
- complete all graduation requirements except for the 27 law units needed for the BA in Law by the end of your junior year;
- earn an overall cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher; and apply any time during your junior year with a minimum overall 3.3 GPA and either a GRE score or an LSAT score.
Meeting the minimum requirements to apply through the 3+3 program does not ensure admission. All admission decisions are based upon a holistic assessment of all application materials submitted. If admitted, 3+3 students will start as first year law students at the beginning of what would have been their senior year. Unsuccessful applicants will complete their undergraduate degree in law as seniors, and may apply to law school following the usual timeline and procedures. For more information on 3+3 degree requirements, sample 4-year plans, and making an appointment with the Academic Advisor for Law, see the 3+3 program website.
Upon admission, applicants will be required to submit their official transcripts, at their own cost, directly to the Law School Admission Council.
