Program Information

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.

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/.
