|IX. TRANSFER BETWEEN DIVISIONS
The Law School does not allow a student to transfer between divisions unless the student can present a compelling reason for such a transfer. A request for transfer should take the form of a petition addressed to the Assistant Dean/Registrar. Division transfers will not be permitted until the expiration of one full year.
Evening to Day
Students requesting transfer after the first year in the evening division should file a petition no later than March 1. To make up the necessary credits and residency requirements to meet degree requirements the student must follow one of two tracks:
In the spring of the first year, enroll in the day division Constitutional Law course (4 credits) in addition to the regular spring semester evening courses. A petition to overload must be filed and will be granted only if the student is not employed in excess of twenty (20) hours per week.
Enroll in one Suffolk University Law School Summer Boston session, or equivalent sessions, of at least 4 credits
Enroll in two Suffolk University Law School Summer Boston sessions, or equivalent sessions, totaling no less than 8 credits.
For those students who request a transfer to the evening division after or during the second year in the evening division, a determination will be made at the time of transfer based on the number of credits and days in residence completed as to the remaining degree requirements.
Students interested in transferring from the evening division to the day division should consult with the Assistant Dean/Registrar.
