Cost of Attendance

The Paralegal Studies programs are competitively priced. Paralegal Studies students are charged a per-credit rate up to 11.5 credits a semester. In addition to the per credit cost for the courses they select, students pay minimal fees per semester, which usually total less than $100. This per-credit pricing structure means that Paralegal Studies students can progress at nearly a full-time pace for a fraction of the cost of full-time tuition. Currently, the Paralegal Studies Certificate, including books and fees, will cost a student under $14,000. For the current per credit rate, please visit the Office of the Bursar Website and view "University Studies – Part-time Per Credit Hour".
