Transfer and Transient Students

Transfer and transient applicants in good academic standing at other ABA-accredited law schools are encouraged to apply and complete their application by July 1. Applications will be reviewed as received, and applicants will be considered for acceptance based on their credentials and seat availability. Applicants completing their application after July 1 will be considered only if there is seat availability. Transfer applicants should be in the top half of their class.

Mercer Law School will only accept credit earned at another ABA-accredited law school. We will accept credit for courses when the grades received equal or exceed the graduation average required by the school where the student has taken the courses. When we accept credit for courses taken at another school, the grades will be recorded as “S” and will not be computed into a student’s grade-point average at Mercer Law School. In addition to meeting the other requirements for graduation, transfer students must complete at least four semesters at Mercer Law School. No more than two semesters of academic credit can be transferred from schools that are not members of the Association of American Law Schools.
