* The School of Law will accept nine credits (three courses under advisement) of approved course work from the M.B.A. program toward the J.D. degree.

The Law School Registrar maintains a list of such approved courses.
**41 credits are required for the program. The Zarb School of Business will accept nine credits under advisement form the J.D. Program toward the M.B.A. degree.
In the third year, or whenever J.D./M.B.A. students are enrolled full time in the School of Business, they pay the prevailing graduate business school tuition and no law school tuition, unless additional law school credits are undertaken, in which case per credit law school tuition applies.
In addition to this schedule, the full-time J.D./M.B.A. student may choose to take the M.B.A. courses during the second and third year of the J.D. program, graduating with the J.D. degree in three years and completing the M.B.A. degree in the fourth year. The part-time J.D./M.B.A. student may choose to take the M.B.A. courses during the third and fourth year of the J.D. program, graduating with the J.D. degree in four years and completing the M.B.A. degree in the fifth year. A student who chooses this scheduling of the J.D./M.B.A. program should consult with the Assistant Dean for Academic Records.
J.D./M.B.A. students seeking additional course work in the Zarb School of Business beyond that described above must pay the prevailing tuition rate. J.D./M.B.A. students are eligible for both School of Law and Zarb School of Business scholarship assistance and financial aid.
In order for School of business credits to be accepted by the Law School, the student must have been accepted to the M.B.A. program by the School of Business, the student must receive a grade of “C” or better, and the course must be one of those specifically approved by the Law School for credit. No grades received in School of Business courses will be counted in the student’s Law School GPA.; if a “C” is earned in an approved course, it will be counted as a “Pass” toward the Law School GPA. Credits earned at the School of Business during Summer Sessions or during the X Session in January will not be applied toward the requirements for the J.D. degree.
