Applying to Purdue Global Law School


Law School Admission Requirements and Process

We appreciate your interest in Purdue Global Law School and look forward to learning more about your career goals. A significant advantage of applying to Purdue Global Law School is that you won’t lose valuable time waiting for a specific month or season to apply. There are several starts per year, so you don't have to wait for the traditional once-per-year cycle.

Juris Doctor program enrollment is open to individuals who live in or plan to live in, or work for or plan to work for an employer based in, California, Indiana, North Carolina, or Wisconsin.

Executive Juris Doctor enrollment is open, regardless of location.

Step 1: Apply Online

You can apply and sign your enrollment agreement online. Once we receive your online application, an Admissions Advisor will reach out to walk you through the next steps and you will receive a copy of your completed enrollment agreement. You can contact an Admissions Advisor with questions at any point in the process.

Step 2: Complete the Purdue Global Law School Online Admissions Exam

This exam is mandatory for all applicants, regardless of legal degree track. The format is a multiple-choice exam that tests reading comprehension and logical analysis, not legal knowledge. The exam can be taken from your home, office, or any location with a reliable internet connection. There’s no costly testing fee. A short no-cost online preparatory course is available to help you do your best on the exam.

Step 3: Submit Required Documents

Along with your completed online application, you must submit college or university transcripts in order to be considered for admission. LSAT scores are not required (unless you have previously been academically disqualified from a law school). However, if available, we encourage you to include them, as your LSAT score may make you eligible for a partial scholarship. Once all materials are received, your application is then presented to the Purdue Global Law School Admissions Committee for consideration. You’ll receive notification about your application promptly.

Additional Requirements

Applicants who earned their bachelor's degree from an institution accredited by an accrediting organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (such as the Distance Education and Accrediting Commission) will be considered for admission to Purdue Global's law programs. In general, students should have a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average from their undergraduate work.

International Students

Did you complete your undergraduate or graduate degree outside the United States? Study must be evaluated by a credential evaluation service approved by the Committee of Bar Examiners and you must demonstrate English proficiency.

Such proficiency may be demonstrated by having earned a TOEFL score of 550/213/80 or higher or completion of at least 2 years of college-level study within the United States.

All courses offered are conducted in English. You must be able to speak, read, and write English fluently. English abilities will be determined through the School's interview and application process.

Transfer Students

Students who have studied at law schools in the United States must have their legal study evaluated and certified by the Committee of Bar Examiners prior to Purdue Global Law School's acceptance and application of those credits into the JD program. For the EJD program, transfer credits are subject to review by the School.
