Associate in Applied Science (PLG.APP)
The Paralegal Program leads to an Associate in Applied Science Degree. The program is designed to provide the legal profession with qualified paraprofessionals who will
perform legal research, aid in discovery and analyze evidence in preparation for litigation in the various court systems at the local, state and national levels.
Requirements for acceptance to the program:
- Complete all Required Supportive courses with a grade point average of 2.5 or higher.
- Complete ENG 1510, ENG 1520, BUS 2030, and BUS 2040 with a grade of C+ or higher.
- Be interviewed by the PLG Program Coordinator. This interview should be scheduled as soon as possible once the student declares an PLG major but must be scheduled prior to the student's
enrollment in the first course sequence within the program.
The American Bar Association also requires that any course substitutions be approved before starting the PLG program of study. Students should see a counselor to
initiate this process.
