Joint Degree ProgramsApplicants who are interested in pursuing a joint degree program must apply and be admitted to both the College of Law and the other Syracuse University graduate school or college. Students admitted to the College of Law are not guaranteed acceptance into other graduate programs.

Joint degree students are required to complete their first year of study in the College of Law. Accordingly, most students apply for admission to joint degree programs during the first year of law school. However, applicants may apply for joint degree candidacy before beginning the first year of law study.

Candidates for joint degree programs must obtain advance approval from the College of Law. Minimum academic requirements apply to joint degree program participation for law students.
