Computation of Graduation Credits

In computing the required number of credits for graduation, several limitations apply:

  • Absent approval in writing from Chair of the Academic Standards Committee, no student may count more than twelve (12) credit hours earned in courses graded on a Pass/Fail basis toward the total number of hours required for graduation;
    • Credits earned in the Bar Preparation course, the Legal Skills (or Critical Practice Skills III Course) and the Academic Skills courses as well as the Presidential Honors Seminar, are exempt from this limit;
  • No more than a total of four (4) of the credit hours required for graduation may be in the form of Law Journal, Moot Court, or Independent Study credit; and,
  • No more than six (6) of the credit hours required for graduation may be in the form of externship credit.
