To develop a multi-dimensional view of every applicant, we look at several key factors: academic record, personal and career goals, experiences, and achievements. No single qualification, by itself, assures acceptance or rejection. This approach results in a student body of bright, highly motivated people who have wide-ranging interests, skills, and objectives.
All St. Francis students:
- An applicant is eligible for admission if such applicant has a bachelor’s degree or a master’s or doctorate degree earned from an accredited institution approved by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation or the United States Department of Education, or the foreign equivalent, and has an overall GPA of 2.5 or higher.
- Enjoy learning through an online environment.
- Like to participate in challenging discussions in a small group setting.
- Have clear educational goals.
Some St. Francis students pursue a J.D. degree to enter a chosen field or to make a career change. Others may want a law degree to increase their opportunities for advancement, or to make it easier to work with practicing attorneys. A lawyer who works in another country may seek a J.D. in order to practice in the U.S.
