Transfer of LL.M. Credits
If admitted, credits earned in courses in which J.D. students may also enroll (J.D. courses) will count toward J.D. degree requirements. Credits earned in courses for LL.M. students in which J.D. students may not enroll (LL.M. courses) will not count toward J.D. degree requirements.
Note: Admitted students that have met the degree requirements of the Penn State Law LL.M. program and who have already received their LL.M. degree from Penn State Law, may request advanced standing for credits earned in the LL.M. program by including an addendum in their J.D. application that specifically addresses this request. In no case will credits count toward both the LL.M. and the J.D. degree.
