Pre-Law 3+3 Program

Mount Mercy University has an agreement in place with the University of Iowa College of Law that allows an undergraduate student at Mount Mercy to earn both their bachelor’s and law degrees in just six years, rather than the usual seven.

The 3+3 program allows qualified undergraduates admission into the U of I College of Law after the conclusion of their junior year, applying credits earned during their first year of law school to their undergraduate degree. 

In order to participate in the 3+3 program, students must:

  • Meet Mount Mercy University requirements as outlined in the 2017-18 Academic Catalog.
  • Be admitted to The University of Iowa College of Law by the end of their junior year. Admission to U of I College of Law is not guaranteed for students hoping to participate in the 3+3 program.
