The Honors Program at Cleveland State University is highly selective, enrolling a limited number of outstanding first year and transfer students. Students who apply to the Honors Program are also eligible to apply concurrently to Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law through the Early Law School Admission Program. Early admission guarantees students the right to matriculate in the College of Law, provided that they complete the Honors Program in good standing and receive an Honors Bachelor's degree from Cleveland State University. Students also must submit Law School Aptitude Test (LSAT) scores before matriculation in the law school, but no minimum score is required and test results will not affect a student's matriculation. Students admitted through the Early Law School Admission Program are not under any obligation to attend the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and can apply to and attend other law schools even if accepted under the Early Law School Admission Program.
For a full statement of the conditions on Early Admission and other program requirements please visit the Early Law School Admission page.
Students admitted through the Early Law School Admission Program will have the option to participate in a variety of law school programs while still an undergraduate, including meeting professors, attending lectures and enrolling in law school classes as part of the Honors Program curriculum.
Students already enrolled in the Honors Program can apply to the Early Law School Admission Program during their Freshman, Sophomore or Junior years.
