Please review Section VII. Credit For Work At Other Schools in the Academic Regulations for more information.
Hastings students may transfer up to 30 units of credit from courses taken at another law school. Transfer units do not count toward your GPA and are transferred in as "Credit" (earned grades of C or better) or "Substandard Credit" (earned grades of C- or D). Courses where no credit is earned do not transfer over.
Students interested in visiting another institution must submit a Transfer Credit Petition before applying and enrolling at the other institution. If approved, a letter of good standing (indicating permission to take courses) will be produced. (Do not request a separate letter of good standing.) It is the student's responsibility to inquire with the other institution as to application procedures and deadlines, as well as arranging for an official transcript to be submitted to the Records Office once the courses are complete.
Hastings students may take up to 4 units (of the 30 unit transfer credit maximum) at Boalt Hall through the Consortium Law Program for Inter-school Enrollment at a cost of $15 per course. Applications are available in the Records Office and should be submitted to Records along with a completed Transfer Credit Petition.
The Hastings Writing Requirement must be completed at Hastings, no exceptions.

Hastings students may also transfer up to 6 units (of the 30 unit transfer credit maximum) from non-law graduate coursework. Prior to enrollment, students interested in taking non-law graduate coursework must submit a Non-Law Transfer Credit Petition, as well as a copy of course description, to the Records Office for approval by the Academic Dean. If approved, the student may enroll in the course. Upon completion an official transcript must be submitted to the Records Office, for review.
