OSU 3+3 Requirements

OSU students can be admitted to the proposed program anytime during their first two years of undergraduate study.  At the end of their third year, contingent upon completion of all degree requirements for a B.A. or B.S. degree in a program in the College of Liberal Arts (with the exception of 45 hours of upper-division electives), qualified students may be admitted to the Willamette University College of Law, where their first-year law courses will satisfy the elective requirements for their OSU bachelor’s degrees.  After completing the additional two years at Willamette, participating students will have completed both the Bachelors and J.D. degrees in six years (three years enrolled at OSU and three years enrolled at Willamette University College of Law).   

Requirements for admission are:

  • Minimum combined SAT score of 1950 or composite ACT score of 29;
  • Minimum high school GPA of 3.5;
  • A submitted essay describing the student’s reason for applying to the program and why the student will succeed in an accelerated program;
  • An in-person interview with the Bachelors/Law Program Admission Committee demonstrating the qualities of maturity, focus, and discipline required of program participants; and
  • Participation in a Bachelors/Law Program orientation session.
  • Students interested in applying for this program will be required to meet with OSU program advisor, Louie Bottaro, Head Advisor, Gilkey Hall 213, 541-737-0561,, during their first two years at OSU.

Students in the program apply for admission to the Willamette University College of Law during the junior year of their undergraduate work.

  • Complete all requirements for a major in OSU’s College of Liberal Arts;
  • Complete all requirements for the Baccalaureate Core and the CLA Core;
  • Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.4 or higher;
