The 3+3 Accelerated Programs offer highly motivated undergraduate students a fast track to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a law degree in six, rather than seven, years of study.
What are the advantages of the 3+3 Program?
The 3+3 Program provides a fast track to a career in law, allowing you to join the legal profession one year earlier. After three years of undergraduate study, you do not return to the undergraduate college for a senior year; rather, you enter Scalia Law as a full-time, first year law student. The program will save you one year’s worth of tuition and time.
How does it work?
UMW students must finish major and general education requirements by the end of the third year, and make a formal timely application to GMU’s law school (including LSAT scores). The fourth year is spent at GMU as a first year law student. The UMW undergraduate degree would be awarded from UMW following successful completion of the first year at GMU’s law school. Enrolling in the 3-3 program does not guarantee entrance nor lock one into going to GMU’s law school.
