Credit Evaluation »
For students looking to transfer from an ABA or Committee accredited law school, we highly recommend having your course evaluated by the State Bar of California. This will not only exempt a student from taking the First Year Exam, it will also give them time credit (2 years, 3 years, etc.).
Request Official Transcripts »
While your credits are being evaluated by the Bar, request a copy of your official transcripts from the previously attended law school in preparation for the admission process. An official copy of all transcripts or evaluations must be received by Law School within 45 days from the start of class.
AHUSOL will award transfer credits to students following the State Bar regulations. Student will still be required to meet the minimum preparation time. Transfer students may need to repeat courses taken at other Law schools based on course availability. Transfer students will be sent a proposed “Course of Study” as a guide to which courses AHUSOL will accept. It is also highly recommended for students to have their transcripts evaluated by the State Bar of California. Learn more about this http://www.calbar.ca.gov/
Student must have passed the FYLSX or successfully completed first year at an accredited law school. AHUSOL will not grant credit for transferring courses exceeding number of units awarded by AHUSOL. See Cal Bar Rules for more information.
The California State Bar requires “student engages in a minimum of 864 hours of preparation and study each year for four (4) years.”
Previously dismissed students can apply if credible evidence that the prior disqualification was not caused by the applicant’s lack of capacity for the study of law or two (2) years have elapsed since the disqualification. Refer to policy.
