USM, MC Law form unique partnership

HATTIESBURG and JACKSON — A unique partnership between the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg and Mississippi College School of Law (MC Law) in Jackson will enable undergraduates to obtain their bachelor of arts degree from Southern Miss after one year of study in the MC Law program.

The agreement allows incoming freshmen at Southern Miss with a minimum ACT score of 27 or SAT score of 1180 to pursue a three-year course of study in a B.A. program. By maintaining at strong grade point average during that time frame and scoring at least 150 on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), students will be admitted into MC Law. They may then transfer back their first year of coursework at MC Law to complete the B.A. requirements from Southern Miss.

Students must declare their intention to be part of the program before they complete 24 credit hours.
