The University of Central Florida has established 3+3 Accelerated Law Programs with

  • Touro College Law Center (Central Islip, NY)
  • Barry University School of Law (Orlando, FL)
  • Florida State University College of Law (Tallahassee, FL)

Students who meet the eligibility and admission requirements at both UCF and one of these three law schools can complete a bachelor’s degree and a law degree in six years rather than the traditional seven, saving a year of time and costs.

OVERVIEW – 3+3 Eligibility and Admissions

  • A 3+3 program does not guarantee admission into law school.
  • No more than 30 credit hours can be transferred from a 3+3 law school toward the 120 credit hours needed to complete a bachelor’s degree at UCF.
  • A bachelor’s degree at UCF is not completed until the successful completion of the first year at a 3+3 law school.
  • Both the Department of Legal Studies and Office of Pre-Health and Pre-Law Advising at UCF have the discretion of accepting or denying admission to a student to a 3+3 accelerated law program.
