JD/MSA Foundation Course Equivalencies

Oftentimes prospective students want to know which undergraduate courses will satisfy graduate foundation course requirements. Below is a list of course equivalencies for students who completed their undergraduate work at The University of Akron. An advisor will be able to tell you what foundation courses will be required at your new student entry appointment.

JD/MSA Foundation Waiver Policy

Foundation courses may be waived provided the student has earned a "B" or better in an equivalent course or courses within the past six years. The CBA graduate office must confirm course waivers. In all cases the burden of proof is on the student. A waiver can be obtained if the student has completed the following University of Akron undergraduate courses or their equivalents at other institutions. (Where equivalency is in doubt, course descriptions, books used, syllabi, etc. should be presented.) Once course work in law or business is begun at UA, no undergraduate course work for waivers is permitted.
