If you attended a foreign institution (not including a study abroad program through a domestic post-secondary institution): The law school recommends that your academic credentials be evaluated for baccalaureate equivalency and assessment of grade-point average through the World Education Service, Inc. (WES). Applicants must pay for the cost associated with having their foreign transcripts evaluated. The evaluation must be mailed directly to the law school by World Education Services, Inc. (WES) on or before the application deadline.

**Foreign-Born Applicants

If English is NOT your first language, we require the results from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) are to be mailed directly to the law school on or before the application deadline.

An offer of admission from the law school to a foreign-born applicant is conditioned upon verification that, as an incoming foreign-born student, you are eligible to enroll in school and can show evidence of your ability to satisfy the financial obligations associated with attending school.
