The Oxford Plan - Fast Track to a Law Degree!

The Oxford Plan is an interdisciplinary major administered jointly by the departments of philosophy and political science and includes preferential admission policies at the School of Law. The major is patterned after the philosophy, politics, and economics major at the University of Oxford.

To participate in the Oxford Plan at Oklahoma City University, a student must satisfy any one of the following requirements:

  1. A composite ACT score of 27 or higher;
  2. A combined SAT score of 1220 or higher; or
  3. A high school cumulative grade point average of 3.75 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.

Successful participants in the Oxford Plan qualify for preferred admission to the Oklahoma City University School of Law. A participant with an LSAT score of 155 or higher and an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher is guaranteed admission to the School of Law. Other participants receive a preference in admission to the School of Law over applicants from other undergraduate institutions. To qualify for guaranteed or preferred admission, the participant must meet the School of Law’s character and fitness requirements and apply by February 1.

OXFORD PLAN APPLICATION

Participants in the Oxford Plan may also qualify to complete their combined B.A. and J.D. degrees in only six years, rather than the usual seven years. Participants who successfully complete all of the requirements of the Oxford Plan and their foreign language requirement and are admitted to the School of Law may begin law school after only three years of undergraduate work. They receive their B.A. degrees after successfully completing the first year of law school. For complete details, please see the School of Law’s Web site, http://law.okcu.edu/.
