4.21.03 Application to the Joint J.D./MBA Program A. Students enrolled in either the School of Management or the Law School may seek the assistance of the program advisors. Prospective students not currently enrolled at Capital University may request additional information about the joint degree program from either:
B. Persons who desire to enroll in the joint program should read thoroughly the relevant materials of both the Graduate Law Program and the School of Management prior to scheduling a conference with the joint program advisor in either school. A student already enrolled in one school should first talk with that school's advisor. C. Admission into the MBA program requires completing and filing its admissions application, together with the reported results of the GMAT, with the School of Management (SOM); the School of Management has indicated that it will also accept LSAT scores in lieu of GMAT scores for joint graduate program students; the LSAT must have been taken within five years of application to the joint degree program. Similarly, admission into either the LL.M or M.T. program requires completion and filing of the appropriate admissions application and other required documentation to the Graduate Law Programs Office. 1. The joint degree applicant must complete two applications, submit the required standardized test score to the School of Management, pay two application fees, and file the joint degree application with both programs. 2. Because each school admits students separately, admission into either program does not signify or predict admissibility into the other. D. A prospective student not already enrolled in either school may apply to both schools at the same time and so indicate by filing the joint student application with both schools. E. The student already enrolled in one program may apply for admission into the other program as outlined in the relevant admissions materials of each school and be considered a joint LL.M/MBA or MT/MBA student. Also a joint degree application must be filed with the Office of Admission of each school. 1. As indicated above, admission into one program does not signify admissibility into the other program. In order to be admitted into the second program the student will have to be in good standing in the first program and meet all admission requirements of the second program. However, a student who is near completion of one program, but who has not yet commenced the other program, may not be able to realize the full benefits of the joint degree program. 2. A current student in either program may apply to be a joint student by notifying the faculty advisor and registrar (Law School) or registrar (SOM) of the school in which the student is already enrolled, and then applying for admission to the other school. F. Occasionally an applicant to the joint LL.M/MBA program seeks to apply, as transfer credit, course work taken at a school other than Capital University. The School of Management accepts up to nine hours of transfer credit from another accredited MBA program (usually about three courses) and the Graduate Law Program accepts up to 6 credit hours of advanced taxation transfer credit from another accredited law program, which may only be applied to the LL.M in Taxation program. However, a course taken at another institution and accepted for transfer credit by SOM cannot be used to satisfy the nine credit hours that the Graduate Law Program accepts from SOM work for credit toward the LL.M degree. A course taken at another institution and accepted for transfer credit by the Graduate Law Program cannot be used to satisfy the nine credit hours that the School of Management accepts from the Graduate Law Program work for credit toward the MBA degree.
