Semesters of Residence

"Resident" semesters are fall and spring. (Summer is not considered a semester of "residence.")

"Resident" semesters are also characterized as semesters of full-time enrollment, which is 12+ credits. (Summer is not considered a semester of "residence," even if the student is enrolled in 12+ credits during the summer.)

Students who begin at Penn State's law school in our full-time program must be in residence for 6 semesters.

Students who transfer from another institution to Penn State's law school must be in residence for 4 semesters.

More detailed information on residency may be found here: Earning Credits from Another ABA-Accredited Law School.
