Joint Degree Students

Students who earn a joint degree or certificate will incur a nominal administrative fee.  Law students are also encouraged to consider graduate-level courses at other Penn departments that complement their legal education, and Penn Law will grant credit for up to four such courses. Students who take courses for which the Law School does not give credit toward the Law degree (e.g., a fifth course, or a course for which we cannot give JD credit) will pay for those courses at the prevailing rate. 

 Pursuing a joint degree may also have an impact on how your financial aid award is structured.  In some cases, grants and scholarships can be reduced based on enrollment and program changes. Before pursuing a joint degree, it is important that you consult with a financial aid counselor about your specific program of interest. To learn more about our joint degree opportunities please see Joint and Dual Degree Programs.
