LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) The University of Kansas is starting a program to allow students to earn a law degree in six years, rather than the usual seven.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the School of Law will offer the program, starting with students admitted to Kansas for the fall 2013 semester.

6NewsLawrence reports (http://bit.ly/We1iUs) the program save students about $18,000 in tuition, and a year of living expenses. University officials also hope it will help retain undergraduate students.

Students will spend three years in undergraduate studies, then three years in law school. The first year of law school will be considered as elective credits toward a bachelor's degree.

Applicants must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and minimum ACT score of 28 to be admitted to the program.
