Oklahoma City University School of Law welcomes applications from transfer students. To receive the J.D. degree from our law school, students who have transferred from another law school must complete at least 50% of their total academic credits and all uncompleted required courses for the J.D. degree in residence at the law school, regardless of circumstances. Transfer students must complete their last forty-five hours at Oklahoma City University. Summer work taken at another institution during these last 45 hours will not transfer.
Transfer applicants from ABA-accredited law schools who are in the top ten percent of their class are eligible for up to $10,000 in scholarship funds. All transfer applicants are automatically considered for the scholarship. Contact the Admissions Office for more information about scholarship opportunities for transfer students.

Even if you have applied to Oklahoma City University School of Law before, you will need to reapply for admission and submit all required documents. If you were denied admission, we strongly suggest that you schedule an appointment with an admissions professional to discuss and develop ways to enhance your chances of being admitted.
ALTERNATE SUMMER ADMISSION PROGRAM
The Alternate Summer Admission Program (ASAP) is a conditional admission program designed to identify and evaluate those candidates for admission whose quantitative credentials, either LSAT or GPA, do not meet the requirements for direct admission to the law school, but whose personal statement, letters of recommendation, and resume reveal characteristics that meet the non-academic standards sought by the admissions committee. Especially valued in this process is evidence of important academic skills–analytical reasoning, writing, research, oral communication, logic, critical thinking and problem solving–that suggest strong potential for success in law school.
The admissions committee extends offers to enroll in ASAP to a limited and select group of applicants. Spaces are limited and candidates must be available to attend the 4-week program from the end of May through June.
The program itself constitutes the only method of entry into the law school apart from the ordinary admissions process. While regularly admitted students matriculate in the fall, candidates admitted into ASAP take two specially designed courses and may gain admission into the regular program upon successfully completing ASAP.
No separate application is required for consideration. All applicants not admitted directly to the fall program are considered candidates for ASAP.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT APPLICANTS
The School of Law welcomes international students to our campus. In addition to the regular application requirements, we require the TOEFL for any student for whom English is a second language. If you completed any post-secondary work outside of the U.S. (including its territories) or Canada, you must use the JD Credential Assembly Service for Foreign-Educated Applicants (JD-CAS) available from the Law School Admission Council. This service is included in the CAS subscription fee. A Foreign Credential Evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), which will be incorporated into your CAS report. If we determine that you need to submit a TOEFL score, you must contact the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and request that your TOEFL score be sent to LSAC. LSAC’s TOEFL code for the JD Credential Assembly Service is 0058. Your score will be included in the Foreign Credential Evaluation document that will be included in your CAS law school report.
To use the JD CAS, log in to your online account and follow the instructions for registering for the service. Be sure to print out a Transcript Request Form for each institution and send it promptly to them. More time is usually required to receive foreign transcripts.
Questions about the JD Credential Assembly Service can be directed to LSAC at 215.968.1001, or LSACINFO@LSAC.org.
Financial Certification Requirement for International Students
Upon admission, international students will be asked to provide a Financial Certification documenting sufficient funds to cover the costs of attendance for one academic year. However, if you completed foreign work through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a US or Canadian institution, and the work is clearly indicated as such on the home campus transcript, the financial certification requirement is waived.
