Arts and Sciences Accelerated Law Program

Through a collaborative program with the College of Law, selected students can complete their undergraduate degree and a J.D. in six years. At the end of their second semester in Law School and the completion of 124 applicable semester hours, students in the program will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.), or Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree.

Students in the College of Arts and Sciences are eligible to apply for admission to the accelerated law program in the fall of their third year (junior year) of undergraduate study at The University of Tulsa. The accelerated law program is open to all students from all College majors. Admission to the program, though, is highly selective. Students with AP or IB transfer credit hours will more easily satisfy program requirements. Summer coursework may also be necessary for students in certain majors to complete Arts and Sciences college requirements in three years. Students selected for the program need not complete a disciplinal minor or a senior project course.
