  • Transcript
    An official transcript of all law school course work (including the last term enrolled prior to visit)
  • Permission Letter
    A permission letter from the dean of the law school you are currently attending which certifies that you are in good standing and that credit earned while attending the USF School of Law will be accepted toward your degree requirements. Any other restrictions and requirements of the degree-granting institution also must be contained in the letter.
