Three Plus Master’s Program and Three Plus JD Program


Three Plus Master’s Program
This program makes it possible for qualified Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) students to earn a BA in Environmental Management and a Master of Energy Regulation in four years.

Three Plus JD Program
This program makes it possible for qualified SNHU students to earn both a BA in Law and Politics and a JD in six years.



SNHU students must have earned a cumulative grade point average of a 3.25. Students applying for the JD program must meet the median LSAT score for matriculants at Vermont Law School the previous year. The students will have a personal interview with Vermont Law School admissions only after Vermont Law has determined that the applicant has met the threshold GPA and LSAT score. Students should have no evidence of Character and Fitness concerns that would disqualify the applicant from admission.


SNHU students must apply for a dual-degree program at SNHU no later than the end of their freshman year. Early enrollment is encouraged to ensure that the student completed all degree requirements at SNHU before matriculating at Vermont Law School. Students should apply to Vermont Law School by March 15th of their junior year. For students applying to the JD program this includes the LSAT no later than February of their junior year.
