We report measurements of γ-ray spectra from muon capture on 35Cl. For the allowed Gamow-Teller transitions to the 35S(2939,3/2+) state and the 35S(3421,5/2+) state we obtained their capture rates, hyperfine dependences, and γ-ν correlation coefficients. The capture rates and hyperfine dependences were compared to shell model calculations using the complete 1s-0d space and the universal SD interaction. With gp/ga =6.7 and ga= -1.00 (or ga= -1.26) we found agreement of the model and the data at the 1-2 σ level. However, we caution that the transitions are sensitive to l = 2 forbidden matrix elements.
