The 3 + 3 Program

The "3 and 3" Program is a collaborative program between Texas A&M University and South Texas College of Law. This program makes it possible for an individual to obtain a Bachelor's degree and a J.D. in six years by admission to law school after the end of the junior undergraduate year and award of a Bachelor's degree after completion of the first year of law school.

Students in this program may be admitted to South Texas College of Law after completing a minimum of 98 undergraduate hours at Texas A&M and receive a Bachelor's degree upon completing a first year of course work at South Texas College of Law.

Undergraduate work at Texas A&M must include all University Core Curriculum requirements and all requirements for a major in a Department in the College of Liberal Arts or in a Department in the College of Geosciences. In addition, while at TAMU, students must earn a cumulative GPA of no less than 3.25 and have no more than one semester (long semester or summer session) less than 3.25 in order to be eligible for and to remain in this Early Admission Program.

After successful completion of at least one full year of course work at South Texas College of Law, students may petition the College of Liberal Arts or the College of Geosciences for the degree to which, on the basis of their undergraduate record, they would be entitled. The Dean of the College will review each student's academic record at South Texas College of Law and , on that basis, recommend the granting of a Bachelor's degree.

Although South Texas College of Law agrees to consider students in this program for early admission, admission to law school is not guaranteed. Students must apply for admission (normally during their third year of undergraduate studies) directly to South Texas College of Law, which makes the final admission decisions. Students in the program who are not accepted for Early Admission still have the option of completing their undergraduate degrees at Texas A&M University.
