South Texas College of Law Houston offers the opportunity to enroll in the full-time program in the fall or spring and the part-time program exclusively in the fall. Applications must be received by March 15 (for fall entry) and October 1 (for spring entry). The fall application opens at the beginning of December and the spring application opens at the beginning of August. While GPA and LSAT scores are important, we also assess each applicant’s life experience, work history, community service and graduate work.
All applicants are required to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), administered nationwide by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) each October, December, February, and June. South Texas College of Law Houston will not consider an LSAT score from a test administered more than five years prior to the beginning of the semester for which application for admission is made. Applicants must also register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Each applicant is responsible for making his or her own arrangements to take the LSAT and for submitting official transcripts of all undergraduate work to CAS for evaluation, as well as any post baccalaureate or graduate work. Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree from a college or university listed in the Accredited Institutions of Postsecondary Education available online.
Registration information for the LSAT and CAS may be obtained by calling LSAC at 215.968.1001 or at www.lsac.org.
