Mitchell Hamline 3+3 Transfer Program

Get a jump start on law school.

Fast track your undergraduate and law degrees with our 3+3 program offered in partnership with the Mitchell Hamline School of Law.

Our 3+3 program allows eligible students to earn an undergraduate degree and a law degree in six years rather than seven. Choose a major from the following options to best suit your interests:

  • Political Science
  • English
  • Economics
  • Social Studies B.A.

Students complete three years of their major at Bemidji State University before starting studies at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law, where the first year transfers to BSU to compete a bachelor’s degree. That’s a four-year bachelor’s and a three-year law degree compressed into six years.

If you decide partway through your undergraduate work that the 3+3 program is not for you — or you are not admitted into the Mitchell Hamline School of Law — you may continue on with your major studies and graduate with your bachelor’s in four years.
