Plan of Study and Courses

Plan of study and courses

Applications are no longer being accepted for the Fall 2018 program; we are at capacity. Applications are now being accepted for the Spring program which begins in January 2019.

Courses are offered in the fall (September - December) and spring (January - May) and occasionally in summer (May/June-June/July) or winter (December/January) sessions. You may start your studies in either semester and, unlike many other paralegal programs, you may work with your advisor to select the number of courses to take each semester that best suits your schedule. Explore the Paralegal Studies Program Plan of Study which includes a complete list of required and elective courses. Completion of 21 credits according to the Plan of Study earns a Certificate in Paralegal Studies. Examine the current schedule of classes.

The schedule of classes comes out in our catalog which is mailed twice a year (January and July) to students who have made an inquiry or registered within the last 6 months. However, the most up-to-date scheduling information can be found on the program webpage. We will also email you reminders of the upcoming schedule if you have provided us with an email address. Request a catalog or join our mailing list.
