​UVM-Vermont Law School (VLS) 3+2 and 3+3 Dual Degree Programs

The UVM-VLS 3+2 and 3+3 Programs provide high-achieving students with an opportunity to achieve a Bachelor’s degree (B.A. or B.S.) and a Juris Doctor (JD) degree in a total of 5 or 6 years. The program is available to undergraduate students pursing a Bachelor’s degree. UVM students interested in pursuing a dual degree with VLS are encouraged to pursue an undergraduate course of study that emphasizes critical reading, analytic, and expository writing skills.

Students complete 3 years of undergraduate study at UVM, then matriculate at Vermont Law School where they complete 2 or 3 years of approved coursework for the JD degree from VLS and are enrolled as full-time students.

Admission to the program occurs at the end of a student’s first year at UVM. UVM students may apply for the dual degree program during their sophomore year if they demonstrate they can complete their undergraduate degree requirements by end of their junior year.

Students must be enrolled as full-time students during the duration of their course of study at UVM. As students will complete their major requirements in a compressed timeframe, it is vital that students are planning how to complete all of the requirements from the beginning of their first year at UVM. Students should review the academic plan for their major and connect with the appropriate major advisor.

  • Students enrolled into one of the UVM-VLS Programs will be admitted to VLS and matriculate as full-time students if they meet admissions criteria. 
  • Credits from the first year at VLS are transferred back to UVM to allow completion of the undergraduate degree from UVM.
  • Students who meet all requirements of the UVM-VLS Program will be awarded the appropriate Bachelor’s degree from UVM and a JD degree from VLS.
  • Students who enroll in this program but choose not to complete the law degree after the first year of enrollment at VLS will have their credits transferred back to UVM for the completion of the Bachelor’s degree.

Requirements

Students apply to either the 3+2 or 3+3 Program no later than the end of their freshman year and if approved, their sophomore year at UVM.  Eligible students must have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours in 2 semesters of full-time study with a minimum GPA of 3.3 and must meet the LSAT requirement. A UVM student must submit a plan demonstrating how the student will complete all general education and major requirements by the completion of their junior year, except for those requirements that can be fulfilled by a course at VLS. Students must maintain their GPA at UVM to continue in the program.

UVM and VLS have a separate Admissions Agreement pursuant to which UVM students recommended by UVM designated coordinator who have achieved a GPA and LSAT score above the median acceptance scores at VLS for the prior year are guaranteed admission to VLS. If a dual degree program candidate fails to meet the academic requirements of the dual degree program, that student will still be eligible for admission to VLS pursuant to this agreement but as a regular VLS student and not as a dual degree student. This means that the student must complete all the requirements of the bachelor’s degree at UVM.

Eligible candidates for the Program must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The number of students selected will be determined each year based on availability. Students must maintain their GPA at UVM to continue in the program.

Application Process

Students should submit the application by mid-April at the end of their first year. The application process includes submission of the application form, essay, and a minimum of 1 letter of recommendation from a full-time faculty member.

VLS agrees to accept any UVM student who meets the qualifications designated in this agreement as long as that student completes the VLS application process no later than March 31 of the junior year. Applications completed after this date will be considered but admission to the dual degree program is not guaranteed. VLS will waive the application fee for students in the dual degree program.

To gain admission to VLS, UVM students must sit for the LSAT no later than October of their third year of study at UVM and must present a score that is equal to or greater than 153 and a UVM cumulative GPA of 3.3.  If a student’s LSAT score falls below this standard, the student may seek permission from VLS to retake the test. If a student earns an admissible score, the student may elect to retake the test to earn a higher score for scholarship funding.

Students must have completed the minimum requirements as set forth by the academic unit approving the applicable UVM degree program before matriculation at VLS. VLS reserves the right to deny admission to any students who have been subject to academic and/or disciplinary action.

UVM-Vermont Law School (VLS) Guaranteed Admission Agreement

The purpose of this articulation agreement is to guarantee admission into Vermont Law School's (VLS) Juris Doctor (JD), Master's, or Joint JD/Master's degree programs to University of Vermont and State Agricultural College (UVM) students who successfully complete UVM requirements for the bachelor’s degree (B.A. or B.S.) and who also meet the VLS entrance requirements stated below.

  1. The applicant has successfully completed all requirements for the UVM bachelor’s degree program;
  2. The applicant has completed a minimum of 60 credits towards the bachelor’s degree in residence at UVM with a cumulative grade point average calculated by the LSAC Credential Assembly Service that is equal to or exceeds the median grade point average of the first-year JD or Master's class in residence at Vermont Law School at the time of UVM student’s application to VLS;
  3. The applicant has a current LSAT score (dated less than 4 years from the first semester of enrollment at Vermont Law School) that is equal to or exceeds the median LSAT score of the first-year JD class in residence at Vermont Law School at the time of UVM student’s application to VLS.  An equivalent GRE score is accepted for VLS Master’s applicants;
  4. The applicant presents 2 acceptable letters of recommendation from UVM faculty, as determined by VLS;
  5. The applicant’s file, from their tenure at UVM and any other academic institution from which credits were earned and/or applied toward UVM degree, contains no evidence of character or fitness concerns that would generally disqualify the applicant from admission into Vermont Law School.

No credit may be given by VLS for academic work completed before the student’s regular matriculation into the first year of the JD, Master's, or Joint JD/Master’s degree programs at VLS.
