Transfer students must go through the same steps as first-year law students in applying for admission to Arizona Summit Law School. In addition, students wishing to transfer to Summit must submit—with their application—a letter of good standing and law school transcript. Transfer credits are accepted from ABA accredited law schools only.
Applicants must have obtained all transfer credits within the four academic years prior to matriculation at Arizona Summit Law School. Only grades with a C or better are eligible to transfer. The Associate Dean of Academic Affairs has the right to refuse credit for classes previously taken at other law schools. Once admitted, a transfer student must contact the Office of Records & Registration to determine what classes will transfer and to determine registration for Summit classes.
Students wishing to have visiting status at Arizona Summit Law School should complete and submit the standard application online. Students wishing to visit should provide Summit with a letter of good standing from their current law school, written permission from their law school, and official transcripts from all previously attended law schools. Check the Visiting Student box on the application. Once accepted as a Visiting Student, you will work with the Office of Records & Registration for registration of classes, etc.
Applicants with an adequate background of experience or study who have special need for a limited acquaintance with a field of law may, with the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, enroll in one or more classes at Arizona Summit Law School. Members of the Bar may also enroll in one or more classes with the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. Any person wishing to audit courses must submit an application to the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs with an accompanying statement of their situation and needs (audit petition forms are available). Unless the applicant seeks admission as a regular student, her/his status and privileges are those of an auditor, and she or he will not receive credit for attendance or work done. Applicants who later seek admission as a regular student will not receive credit for audited classes.
