Classroom Paralegal Program Registration

Program Cost and Payment Options

The program cost per semester is $1,750. Textbooks are not included in the program price. Program costs are due at the time of registration. Students paying by use of an approved benefits program or loan will be permitted to attend class pending receipt of the payment/disbursement if, prior to the registration deadline, all loan and/or benefit pre-approval forms have been received in the paralegal office.

Student may opt to pay a partial fees payment of $1,150, which includes a one-time nonrefundable payment plan fee of $200 and $950 program cost. A second payment of $800 is due no later than 4 p.m. on the Tuesday following the session-5 class. Please note that failure to pay the amount due by the due date will result in the student being immediately dropped from the course without further notice.

If paying for the program in full, program costs for the three-semester program is $5,250. Students who pay in this manner must take each course consecutively as it is offered. Failure to do so will result in the student not being registered in the program, and it will initiate the refund procedure. Monies paid in advance will be refunded, less a nonrefundable $150 processing fee.

If you currently work in the legal field, you may wish to ask your employer to reimburse all or a portion of the cost for the program.

If you pay for the program with a student loan, the amount requested should not exceed the estimated cost of attendance displayed in the table below.

All refunds will incur a $150 nonrefundable processing fee, which will be withheld from the refunded monies. Students who have paid one semester of program costs will receive a refund less the $150 processing fee. Students who have pre-paid all program costs and who withdraw prior to the first day of class, will receive a refund of the future program costs less the $150 processing fee. The $150 nonrefundable processing fee and the $200 nonrefundable payment plan fee are both not refundable for any reason. No refunds will be issued after the start of the semester.
