3+3 Program

Saint Louis University School of Law has partnered with the below undergraduate institutions to provide a 3+3 program to students interested in pursuing their law degree. Through this program, students are eligible to apply to law school in their junior year. They will complete three years of undergraduate course work and three years of law courses, with the first year of law courses satisfying the requirements for the bachelor’s degree. This program allows students to graduate with their bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctorate in six years, saving the student tuition and time.


Applicants to the 3+3 Program must be in their junior year at an undergraduate institution with which SLU LAW has a 3+3 agreement. Applicants must also meet their undergraduate institution’s criteria for eligibility. Each undergraduate institution determines which majors and programs are eligible for participation.

Application Requirements

All applicants must be an eligible junior at one of the partner institutions above. Applicants must also sit for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), complete an official SLU LAW application, and submit a certification of eligibility from their current undergraduate institution.  Candidates for the 3+3 Program will be considered with SLU LAW’s regular applicant pool.

Applicants to the 3+3 Program are encouraged to take the LSAT in June, September or November and complete their application in January once their fall semester grades are available.


Students admitted under the 3+3 Program to SLU LAW will pay tuition only to SLU LAW. Any scholarships awarded at your undergraduate institution will not transfer.
