Missouri State University has established transfer agreements with both public law schools in Missouri: University of Missouri-Columbia and University of Missouri-Kansas City.

Qualified Missouri State students will have a one-year head start on attending law school and will be able to earn a bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctor (JD) degree in six years, rather than the usual seven years.

“At a time when schools across the country are competing for students and dollars, it is gratifying that our three schools can work together for the benefit of our students and the citizens of Missouri,” said Missouri State President Clif Smart.

Students will complete three years toward their bachelor’s degree at Missouri State, then start law school. They will transfer credits from law school back to MSU to complete their bachelor’s degree.
