Courses at Other Law Schools

Subject to transfer credit limits, a student at UM Carey Law may receive credit for any course taken during the academic year at an ABA-accredited law school, provided:
  • The student receives advance approval from the Office of Registration & Enrollment to take the course; and
  • The student receives a grade of C- or better in the course (credits transfer, the grade does not); and
  • The course is not a required course at the University of Maryland School of Law; and
  • The course (or a substantially similar course) is not offered at the University of Maryland School of Law at any time during the academic year, or
  • The student is unable to register for the course (or a substantially similar course) at the University of Maryland School of Law at any time during the academic year because the course is fully enrolled.

In exceptional cases, in which a student does not meet the requirements above, authority given a student to receive credit for a course is within the discretion of the Office of Registration & Enrollment. For purposes of this policy, an academic year consists of a fall semester and the immediately following spring semester.

Subject to transfer credit limits, a student at UM Carey Law may receive credit for any course taken during a summer session at an ABA–accredited law school if the student receives, from the Office of Registration & Enrollment of the University of Maryland School of Law, approval in advance to take the course and receives a grade of C- or better in the course (credits transfer, the grade does not).
