We are therefore pleased to provide the following information, in accordance with ABA Standards 509 and 504(a).

(3)(ii) Institutions with which Cardozo Law has Established an Articulation Agreement
- Other than our established joint programs (JD/MSW, JD/MSB), we have no agreements between schools governing the transfer of credit (articulation agreements).
Section 509 (d) A law school shall distribute the data required under Standard 509(b)(3) to all applicants being offered conditional scholarships at the time the scholarship is extended.
The ABA defines a conditional scholarship as being “any financial aid award, the retention of which is dependent upon the student maintaining a minimum grade point average or class standing, other than that ordinarily required to remain in good academic standing.” Cardozo Law School does not award conditional scholarships and therefore does not post an ABA Conditional Scholarship Retention Report.

Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction.
