Immaculata University and Widener University Delaware Law School have entered into an articulation agreement that will give Immaculata students the opportunity to earn an accelerated bachelor’s degree from Immaculata and a Juris Doctorate degree from Widener University Delaware Law School in a 3 + 3 program.

Under the agreement, Immaculata students will be admitted to Delaware Law after completing just three years of undergraduate study at Immaculata if:

  • they have completed 75 percent of their bachelor’s degree
  • earned a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher through six semesters at Immaculata
  • achieved an LSAT score that meets or exceeds the median LSAT score of Delaware Law’s most recent entering class
  • satisfied all Delaware Law admissions requirements relating to character and fitness
  • submitted a completed application by April 1 of the calendar year in which they intend to enroll

The program is intended to save students time and expense allowing for the completion of both degrees in six years instead of seven.

“This new agreement provides a clear pathway for our students to earn a law degree in less time and with less cost,” said Immaculata President Barbara Lettiere. “We are excited about this new partnership with Widener University’s Delaware Law School and the opportunities it creates for our Immaculata students.”

Delaware Law School Dean Rodney A. Smolla said he was pleased to see the two schools collaborate.

“The Delaware Law School is delighted to embark on this new partnership with Immaculata University,” he said. “This collaboration will strengthen both institutions and contribute to educational opportunities in both Delaware and Pennsylvania.”
