Transfer & Visiting Applicants
Students who have completed one full year of law school at an accredited institution who are in good standing and eligible to continue at that institution may apply for admission as a transfer applicant.
A maximum of 32 semester credits or 45 quarter credits may be accepted for transfer credit. Only courses with grades of C (or equivalent) or better and which are equivalent to courses at Regent or which have acceptable course content will be accepted. The law school will not accept the transfer of the student’s grade point average from the previous law school for any reason. All transfer students are required to take LAW 511 Christian Foundations of Law.

Students who have completed two full years of law school at another institution and who are in good standing and eligible to continue at that school may apply as a visiting student upon confirmation that all work completed at Regent will be accepted by the law school from which the applicant will graduate.
Visiting applicants must submit Regent's J.D. application according to the instructions for visiting applicants outlined therein.
