Application Requirements for International Students
Concordia University School of Law is authorized to admit international students.
International students are encouraged to apply to Concordia University School of Law. If you are not a citizen of the United States, you must:
- Hold a degree that is equivalent to a baccalaureate degree
- Take the law school admission test
- Sign up with the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) for the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) and then submit all college or university transcripts, and two letters of recommendation, to the CAS
- Submit all required application materials using our online application by April 1 in order to provide sufficient time to acquire a visa
- Submit a copy of your passport showing your official name
Upon admission to Concordia Law, you will need to submit: a statement of financial guarantee that demonstrates proof of financial support to cover the total cost of attendance for the academic year. This document does not need to be submitted in order for your application to be reviewed, but it must be received before we can issue the I-20 form necessary to obtain an F-1 student visa.
In addition to the above requirements, applicants who are not native English speakers and/or do not hold a baccalaureate degree from an institution at which the primary language of instruction is English are required to:
- Receive a TOEFL score of at least 600 (paper based) or 100 (internet based)
- Arrange for the education testing service (ETS) to forward an official TOEFL score to the Law School Admission Council for inclusion on your CAS report
An applicant who has studied for more than one academic year outside of the United States, its territories, or Canada must use the LSAC's JD-CAS service for an evaluation of foreign transcripts. This service is included in the CAS subscription fee. A foreign credential evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), and evaluated transcripts will be included with the CAS report sent to Concordia Law.
