Students who wish to register for courses at other law schools during the summer, including summer abroad programs sponsored by other ABA-accredited law schools, must obtain prior written approval of the Dean of Students. A maximum of six credits will be approved. In addition, for credit to be transferred to Seton Hall, the student must receive a satisfactory grade under the grading scheme of the school offering the course. A grade of Pass/Fail is not acceptable. Grades earned at another law school are not calculated in a student's GPA at Seton Hall.
