Concurrent Enrollment in the College of Law and the Graduate School

Students may enrich their learning by pursuing another graduate degree from The University of Tulsa while pursuing the J.D. degree. The College of Law will count nine credit hours of the other graduate degree program toward the J.D. degree; up to nine credit hours of law courses will count toward the other graduate degree, provided that graduate program is willing to double count hours.

A J.D. student can apply to the other graduate program at any time, but would generally apply during the student’s second semester of Law School. Admission to the J.D. program does not guarantee admission to the other graduate program; the student must meet all admission requirements of the other graduate program.

The J.D. student should consult with advisors from the College of Law and the other graduate degree program to determine which courses can double count. J.D. program tuition and scholarship will apply toward both degree programs until the student completes the J.D. degree. If the student completes the J.D. degree prior to completing the other graduate degree, the student should consult with the graduate degree program advisor and the Graduate School with regard to tuition cost for completing the graduate degree, as well as any available financial aid.
