International Student Admission Requirements

Also see General, Visiting and Transfer student admission requirements.

International students are welcome to apply to the University of Wyoming College of Law.  They are evaluated with the same standards as are all domestic applicants with respect to undergraduate GPA, LSAT score, quality and content of the personal essay, as well as other criteria relevant to success in the study and practice of law.  All applications are evaluated in comparison with the rest of the applications submitted for that year.

Requirements for Admission

In addition to completing the general admission requirements, international applicants must:

  • Provide evidence of English language proficiency as measured by a TOEFL minimum score of 100 on the TOEFL Internet-based test and 600 on the TOEFL paper-based test.
  • Provide official transcripts with an English translation from the educational institutions they attended to earn their undergraduate and/or graduate degrees if the LSDAS report does not provide a transcript analysis for those educational institutions. If the LSDAS report will not show the transcript analysis, you must subscribe to the LSAT only reporting service and have official transcripts sent to us with English translation.

International applicants are strongly encouraged to review the information provided by the University of Wyoming International Students and Scholars Office.


Transfer credits toward JD from LLM international student program

The University of Wyoming College of Law will accept up to 15 hours of transfer credit from another American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law school for a student previously enrolled in an L.L.M. or other post-J.D. program. The credits are available only for upper division electives, and the applicant must have taken these courses no more than three years prior to entering the College of Law.

Transfer credit will be accepted only if the student has received a minimum grade of ‘B' in each transfer course. All transfer credits must be approved by the UW College of Law Associate Dean, and they will appear on the UW transcript as ‘S' credit and will not count toward the student's UW grade point average.  A student seeking to transfer this type of credit hours must fulfill all other requirements of the College of Law for the Juris Doctor degree.
