Cleveland- Marshall introduces 3+3 partnership with Rust College
Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University entered in November into a 3+3 program partnership with Rust College in Holly Springs, Mississippi.
The partnership is one of 10 external partnerships CSU has around the country. Rust College, a private institution established in 1866, is one of only 10 historically black colleges and universities in the United States.
The 3+3 program that CSU has been developing over the past several years allows undergraduate students to complete their undergraduate and Juris Doctor degree in six years, rather than seven. The expansion of external partnerships for the 3+3 program allows students at the partnered universities as well as CSU undergraduate students to save time and money while obtaining two degrees.
The other partnered universities are Wagner College, Marietta College, Hiram College, Trine University, Mercyhurst University, Notre Dame College, Ursuline College, the University of Findlay and Lake Erie College.
To be accepted into the program, undergraduate students must have 91 or more undergraduate credit hours, have satisfied CSU residency requirements in general, including all major classes, and have at least a cumulative 3.45 for undergraduate courses taken at CSU.
