Transfer of Uniform Bar Examination Score

Arizona recognizes the Uniform Bar Examination as a valid indicator of legal knowledge and understanding, and allows eligible applicants to transfer a valid UBE score earned in a recognized UBE jurisdiction to satisfy the educational component of Arizona admission.  You may be eligible for admission by transfer of UBE score if:

  • You hold a J.D. degree awarded from an ABA-accredited law school;
  • You passed a Uniform Bar Examination, administered in a recognized UBE jurisdiction on a recognized UBE test administration date;
  • You achieved a UBE score of 273 or greater.

If you meet these criteria, please review the information Arizona Supreme Court Rules 34-36 and the information below to complete the application process.  Every applicant for admission must also undergo a thorough background investigation and complete the Course on Arizona Law. 

For UBE transfer applicants, the application below contains all information.  Only one application and fee is needed for this method of application.   Do not submit separate Character Report, which is required only for applicants for admission by UBE exam testing in Arizona.
