The Oxford Plan for Transfer Students
The Oxford Plan for transfer students puts students on the inside track to OCU Law. This curriculum is designed to prepare you for success in law school. It is patterned after a famous program at the University of Oxford, which has produced many international leaders (such as Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, Justice Stephen Breyer, and many others). Through the study of political science, philosophy, and economics, students learn about the functions of government, the nature of justice, and the foundations of economic policy. These are essential knowledge areas for anyone who is interested in a career of servant leadership, whether it involves working with public policy, the legal system, or private corporations.
Transfer students in the Oxford Plan can qualify for preferred admission to OCU Law, provided that they complete their undergraduate course requirements with a GPA of at least 3.5 and an LSAT score of at least 155.
To learn more about OCU, please see the OCU Law website.
To be eligible for the Oxford Plan for Transfer Students, you must have completed an associate's degree with a cumulative undergraduate GPA average of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent). In addition, international students must have an internet-based TOEFL (IBT) score of 100 or higher.
