How to Apply to the CRES Program



In order to apply to the CRES program you must have earned or will earn, before orientation, a bachelor’s degree from an accredited 4-year US institution or a degree equal to a US four-year bachelor’s degree.

You do not need to be a JD student.

Variety is the spice of life. We encourage and accept all undergraduate majors and minors and do not have a GPA minimum. Entrance exams are not required but are strongly encouraged.

For international students, you must prove English language proficiency and provide financial verification after acceptance. Proficiency is most commonly addressed with a TOEFL score report with an exam date of no more than two years ago.
