Transfer of Credit
If you previously attended another accredited college and earned credit as an undergraduate student, you may be eligible to transfer these hours into your AAS Degree Paralegal Program.
Submit your official college transcript to your Admissions Advisor for evaluation. The Director or Academic Dean will determine which classes are transferable and award credit for those courses:
in which the student has received a grade of “C–” or higher
which are course requirements for the program in which he/she is enrolled
which are being transferred from an institution that is accredited by a regional or national accrediting association.
Keep in mind that a maximum of 12 semester hours of legal specialty courses may be transferred into your program. Legal specialty courses are courses that (1) cover substantive law or legal procedures or process, (2) have been developed for paralegals, and (3) emphasize practical paralegal skills.
A minimum of 50% of the program’s total credit hours must be earned at the Center for the A.A.S.
Also note that while the Center may transfer credit for academic courses, we do not provide for transfer of credit for non-paralegal course work or licensing examinations for other occupations.
Due to the specialized nature of the programs transferability of credit may be limited.
