Admission Requirements

Law school admission requirements vary by program. Select your program below to learn how to apply.

  • LSAT Score: 156
  • GPA: 3.64

Students admitted to Regent Law may request that prior J.D. coursework from other law schools be applied to their J.D. degree at Regent University. Read our Transfer Credit Policy for more details.

The Joint Degree program at Regent University offers students an opportunity to subsequently earn two master’s degrees from different Regent schools, which may reduce the overall number of credit hours required to earn those degrees. Students enrolled in the full-time J.D. program may obtain a joint degree in business, communication, counseling, or government, earning both degrees in significantly less time than would be required if they were pursued separately.

In addition to the program-specific requirements listed above, international applicants need to submit supplementary admission requirements. These requirements will change depending on several factors, such as citizenship and visa status. For more information, please visit our International Students Admissions page.

A lawyer or other professional who would like to increase his or her knowledge in highly specialized and rapidly changing fields of law may apply to law school for admission as a non-degree student. Non-degree students must demonstrate that they have the necessary prerequisites for the course they desire and have the permission of the course instructor before registering. Non-degree students are limited to a maximum of 9 credits. Non-degree students may not enroll in experiential courses such as practicum or internship. Applicants seeking non-degree status must meet the published entrance requirements and must submit the following in the application packet.

  1. Regent University Online Application.
  2. Non-refundable application fee ($65) paid online or by check sent through the mail
  3. Official Undergraduate Degree-Posted Transcript
  4. Goal Statement (Explain your need or interest in pursuing law courses as a non-degree student and your career outcomes)
