Applying as an International Student

Capital University Law School is committed to fulfilling its mission of providing a diverse learning environment for students. Certain steps are required for students who have graduated from foreign institutions and wish to be considered for admission.  International students should follow the required steps below. Please contact the Admission Office if you have additional questions.

  • Complete and submit an application for admission and all required supporting documents. 
  • Take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).  The LSAT is required for all JD applicants.
  • Applicants educated outside of the Unites States, its territories/associated states, or Canada, must submit an authenticated and evaluated international transcript through the Law School Admissions Council's Credential Assembly Service (CAS). 
  • If English is not your first language or you attended a school in which the majority of classes were not conducted in English,  the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for admission to Capital University Law School. The TOEFL may be waived if you have earned a degree from a college or university in the United States.
  • Proof of Financial Support must be provided by all foreign students, including Canadian applicants, before enrolling at Capital Law.  Students must submit proof of sufficient funding to cover the cost of attendance for at least one academic year's expenses.  This proof is required before an appropriate visa can be issued to a student.
