3 + 3 Law Degree: Now Choose Syracuse University or University at Buffalo

Published March 29, 2019

Nazareth College is pleased to partner with the University at Buffalo School of Law to announce a new program that offers highly motivated prospective legal students a combined six-year bachelor’s and law degree. Nazareth already has a similar 3 + 3 program with Syracuse University College of Law.

The six-year program consists of three years at Nazareth as a legal studies,political science,history, or philosophy major and then three years at law school in Buffalo (or Syracuse).

The benefits:

  • Save one year's time and tuition costs compared to the more typical seven-year path to bachelor's and J.D. degrees.

  • Eligible students may receive scholarships based on the terms outlined when accepted to Nazareth College.

  • Nazareth College pays for LSAT preparation with a Kaplan on-campus program ($1,200 value). Students contribute a $100 registration and processing fee.

High school seniors are eligible to apply. Complete the Nazareth College admissions process by the chosen deadline. Although Nazareth College is a standardized-test-optional college for most programs, an SAT or ACT score is required for the 3+3 law program. Interested students must also fill out the 3+3 law online supplemental application form. Once complete, this information will be combined with their Nazareth College application and reviewed by both the Nazareth College admissions team and their chosen law school.
