Applying to Concord Law School
We appreciate your interest in Concord Law School at Purdue University Global and look forward to learning more about your career goals. A significant advantage of applying to Concord Law School is that you won’t lose valuable time waiting for a specific month or season to apply. There are several starts per year, so students do not have to wait for the traditional once per year cycle.
Law School Admission Requirements and Process
There are 3 steps in our admissions process:
Step 1: Submit the Online Request for Information Form
Once we receive your online request, an Admissions Advisor will follow up with you to discuss the degree programs and get all your questions answered.
Step 2: Complete the Concord Law School Online Admissions Exam
This exam is mandatory for all applicants, regardless of legal degree track. The format is a mini-LSAT multiple-choice exam that test reading comprehension and logical analysis, not legal knowledge. The exam can be taken from your home, office, or any location with a reliable internet connection. There’s no costly testing fee or inconvenient travel to an onsite testing center needed.
Step 3: Submit Your Application Online
Along with your completed application, we’ll need to receive college or university transcripts in order to consider you for admission. LSAT scores are not required, but if available, we encourage you to include them, as your score may make you eligible for a partial scholarship. Once all materials are received, your application is then presented to the Concord Admissions Committee for consideration. You’ll receive notification about your application promptly.
Additional Admissions Requirements
Applicants who earned their bachelor's degree from an institution accredited by an accrediting organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (such as the Distance Education and Accrediting Commission) will be considered for admission to Concord's law programs. In general, students should have a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average from their undergraduate work.
Did you complete your undergraduate or graduate degree outside the United States? Study must be evaluated by a credential evaluation service approved by the Committee of Bar Examiners and must demonstrate English proficiency. Such proficiency may be demonstrated by having earned a TOEFL score of 550/213/80 or higher or completion of at least 2 years of college-level study within the United States. All courses offered are conducted in English. You must be able to speak, read, and write English fluently. English abilities will be determined through the School's interview and application process.
Students who have completed law study at schools in the United States must have their legal study evaluated and certified by the Committee of Bar Examiners prior to Concord's acceptance and application of those credits into the JD program. For the EJD program, transfer credits are subject to review by the School.
