Outgoing Study Abroad Student
Per the Guide to UF Law Academic Policies:
Under the ABA guidelines, up to 29 semester hours of credit earned at another ABA- accredited law school (or approved
foreign institution) may be counted towards your total required credits for graduation. The credits you earn will be
accepted towards your J.D. degree at the Levin College of Law, provided that you adhere to the following rules:
* You will not receive credit for any Levin College of Law required courses taken at another law school without prior
* You will not receive credit if you duplicate a course you took while enrolled at the Levin College of Law.
* You will receive credit for elective courses if you earn a 2.0, "C", or its equivalent.
* You will receive credit for fulfilling your Advanced Writing Requirement only if you find a UF Law faculty member to
certify your final paper as meeting the Levin College of Law writing requirement.
In order for the law school to accept transfer credits, you are required to apply through the UF International
Center for Study Abroad.
Once you have been accepted by a program, you must contact Sarah Evans in the UFIC at:
instructions on how to complete the UFIC registration process.
All study abroad students, who wish to receive financial aid, are required to meet with the Financial Aid Coordinator.
