3+3 Program

Wide view of graduationSave Time and Money

You can make your time in class add up with our 3+3 program. Through our partnerships (see list below) with other colleges and universities, you will have the opportunity to take your first year of law classes during your final year of college. Those first-year law classes will count toward finishing your college degree and also toward the completion of your law degree.

Finish your Bachelor's and J.D. in 6 years

Thanks to this option, you will be able to earn your bachelor's and law degree in six years instead of the normal seven. Finishing faster will allow you to save on tuition and living expenses. You will also be able to enter the job market sooner.

How to Apply

You first apply to your undergraduate institution and earn provisional acceptance to the University of Dayton School of Law. Admission to the School of Law is contingent on undergraduate standards established by each undergraduate institution and a Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score higher than the UDSL median for the year of your conditional admission.

The first three years will be at your originating school. The fourth, fifth years and sixth will be at the University of Dayton School of Law where you will complete your bachelor's degree by satisfying undergraduate electives with credits from your first year of law school.
