In addition to the required application components for first year applications or transfer applications, international students must also submit the following:
Foreign transcripts received through JD CAS will be sent to the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) where the transcripts will be authenticated and analyzed. The data will be assembled into a foreign credential evaluation document that contains AACRAO’s summary, copies of the transcripts (and translations, as necessary), and a TOEFL score, if applicable. You must advise Educational Testing Service (ETS) to send your TOEFL score to LSAC (institution code number 0058). This foreign credential evaluation and its associated documents will be incorporated into the regular CAS report in both paper and electronic versions. Upon submission of a matriculation decision, the “original” foreign transcript(s) received by LSAC will be forwarded to the law school.
Applicants who are citizens of a foreign country and whose native language is not English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), unless a baccalaureate degree from an accredited United States college or university has been awarded. When registering with TOEFL, use code 0058 for the Law School Admission Council JD for inclusion in the JD CAS service.
Once admitted, international students should review RWU Law's International Student Requirements page, which contains information and links to help you with immigration paperwork, and assist with your transition to your new community.
