The College of Law offers two joint-degree programs, the 3+3 Program (BA/JD) and the JD/MBA, both designed to help students achieve their graduate education goals while controlling student debt.
3+3 Program (BA/JD)
The 3+3 Program allows students to complete a bachelor's degree and law degree in six years rather than the usual seven.
Willamette University College of Law partners with three undergraduate universities to offer the 3+3 Program: Willamette University College of Law, University of Alaska, Anchorage, and Oregon State University. Program requirements differ, so please check the information below for the partner school you're interested in attending.
Admission to the 3+3 Program does not guarantee admission to the College of Law. Applicants must apply to the law school through the JD application process.
The JD/MBA is a four-year program combining the resources of the Willamette University College of Law and Atkinson Graduate School of Management in two professional degrees: the Juris Doctor and the Master of Business Administration.
Applicants to the JD/MBA Program should apply to the College of Law and the Atkinson Graduate School of Management separately. Admission to one does not guarantee admission to the other.
How to Apply
To apply for admission to Willamette University College of Law, an applicant must complete the JD application process.
When to Apply
Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications far before the final March 1 deadline. Students who wish to be considered for scholarships should apply as early as possible. Willamette begins sending out admission and scholarship decisions in early January of the enrollment year.
Please note, applications will continue to be accepted following the priority deadline so long as there are seats available in the upcoming first-year class. If you have questions, please contact the Admission Office directly by phone: (503) 370-6282 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
