Transfer of Credit Policy

UW Law will accept for transfer all of the credits earned during the transfer student’s first-year program. Semester-hour credits are converted to quarter-hour credits at a ratio of 1:1.5; e.g., 30 semester-hour credits will convert to 45 quarter-hour credits. Additional credits earned after the first-year are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Transfer students are expected to be in residence for a minimum of five quarters and 85 quarter-hour credits. Transfer students are eligible for graduation with honors based upon academic performance in the second and third years of law school at the University of Washington. The Law School does not have any articulation agreements with other institutions. For more information on transferring see Transfer and Non-Degree Admissions
