International students must submit:
- An Application for Admission. Please apply online via www.lsac.org or via our web site at www.stthomas.edu/law/admissions
- Personal Statement
- CAS (formerly LSDAS) Report
- LSAT score. Please contact Law Services for information on testing sites, dates and fees. If your undergraduate work was done in Puerto Rico or Canada you can subscribe to the Law School Data Assembly (LSDAS) and have your transcripts and letters of recommendation sent to Law Services.
- If your undergraduate work was done outside the United States, Puerto Rico, or Canada, then The University of St. Thomas School of Law School requires that your foreign transcripts be submitted through the LSAC JD Credential Assembly Service. If you completed any postsecondary work outside the US (including its territories) or Canada, you must use this service for the evaluation of your foreign transcripts. The one exception to this requirement is if you completed the foreign work through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a US or Canadian institution, and the work is clearly indicated as such on the home campus transcript. This service is included in the CAS subscription fee. A Foreign Credential Evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), which will be incorporated into your CAS report.
- If you are a non-native speaker of English, you must take an English Proficiency (TOEFL at www.toefl.org) UST Law requires a minimum TOEFL score of 80 with a subscore of 20 on the written and 20 on the speaking sections. You must contact the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and request that your TOEFL score be sent to LSAC. LSAC's TOEFL code for the JD Credential Assembly Service is 0058. Your score will be included in the Foreign Credential Evaluation document that will be included in your CAS law school report. To use the JD CAS, log in to your LSAC online account and follow the instructions for registering for the service. Be sure to print out a Transcript Request Form for each institution and send it promptly to them. More time is usually required to receive foreign transcripts. Questions about the JD Credential Assembly Service can be directed to LSAC at (215) 968-1001, or LSACINFO@LSAC.org.
- At least two letters of recommendation must be submitted via LSAC. The letters of recommendation will be included in your CAS law school report.
