The BA/JD Dual-Degree Program, a joint endeavor of Camden College of Arts and Sciences and the Rutgers Law SchoolCamden, enables highly accomplished students to complete both a Bachelor of Arts and a Juris Doctor in six years, rather than the usual seven. Students participating in this accelerated program matriculate in the Law School and complete their first year of law school courses during their fourth year as undergraduates. To prepare for this fourth year, they must complete all undergraduate course requirements in General Education and in their chosen major and compile at least 92 credits during their first three years in Camden. The 28 credits required during the first year of law school count toward both degrees.
Normally, BA/JD students are awarded their bachelors degrees at the end of their fourth year and are eligible to participate in the College of Arts and Sciences graduation ceremonies at that time. The Juris Doctor is typically awarded after two additional years as a full-time law student, on successful completion of the required 84 total course credits in the Law School and of all other J.D. requirements.
*During their three years at CCAS, BA/JD students will pay tuition and fees to Rutgers at the undergraduate rate. Starting with the fourth year, when students begin courses in the Law School, students will pay tuition and fees at the Law School rate. Beginning with the fourth year, financial aid will be calculated in accordance with the Law Schools then-current student eligibility policies.Start date January,October 2015 Duration full-time 72 months Languages Take an IELTS test
This program provides the opportunity for dual B.A./J.D. students to complete all general education requirements and all requirements for a major in the College of Arts and Sciences in three years. Dual-degree candidates must perform sufficiently well to be able to participate in the Honors College. If determined to be qualified, they then enter the School of Law. Credits earned during the students' required first-year law courses shall be deemed to complete the students' requirements for a B.A. degree, provided that the students have earned at least 92 credits in the College of Arts and Sciences prior to matriculation at the law school. The students will receive their B.A. degree upon successful completion of all first-year law courses, normally at the end of their fourth year of study, and dual-degree students shall be eligible to participate in the College of Arts and Science's graduation ceremonies at the end of their fourth year.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
