Following a careful program evaluation, the university is no longer accepting applications for admission to the Paralegal Studies Certificate Program or to the Minor in Paralegal Studies.

The program will remain compliant with American Bar Association guidelines through June 2020, ensuring that current undergraduate students who have completed the coursework for the minor will earn their degree from an ABA-approved program.
