Immaculata and Widener University Delaware Law School offer an accelerated bachelor’s degree leading to a Juris Doctor degree in six years instead of seven. This collaboration, which saves you time and money, offers two special admissions programs for Immaculata undergraduate students: a 3+3 early admission program and a guaranteed admissions program.
Once accepted into the 3+3 program, you complete three years of undergraduate coursework at Immaculata before transferring to Delaware Law School as a full-time, first-year law student.
According to the Occupational Information Network, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, median salaries for those entering law careers include:
- Lawyers: $119,250
- Adjudicators, hearing officers: $94,790
- Judges, magistrates: $133,840
- Arbitrators, mediators, conciliators: $60,670
Degrees & Programs
After completing three years as an undergraduate student at Immaculata and gaining admission to the Law School through the 3+3 program, you will become a law student and will follow the usual course of study for a full-time, first-year student. Upon successful completion of your first year, the credits you earned will count toward the JD degree and as elective credits sufficient to complete your requirements for a bachelor’s degree.
Merit Scholarship Award
Delaware Law offers a minimum $30,000 merit scholarship to all Immaculata students who meet the criteria for the 3+3 early admission program and attend Delaware Law on a full-time basis. This award will be renewable provided the student maintains good academic standing at Delaware Law. The award will be subject to terms and conditions outlined at the time of acceptance.
In addition, you will also be considered for any need-based financial aid for which you would be normally considered.
If you are a transfer student interested in this program, Immaculata may accept up to 34 transfer credits.
In the 3+3 early admission and guaranteed admissions program, you will be admitted to Delaware Law if you:
- completed 75% of your bachelor degree
- earned a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher through six semester at Immaculata
- achieved an LSAT score that meets or exceeds the median LSAT score of Delaware Law’s most recent entering class
- satisfied all Delaware Law admissions requirements relating to character and fitness
- submitted a completed application by April 1 of the calendar year in which you intend to enroll.
