As a non-credit certificate program, the Paralegal Certificate program does not qualify for federal financial aid programs such as FAFSA or grant funding.  FAFSA is used only for degree programs and cannot be applied to non-credit certificate programs. There are different loan options that may assist you in paying for the program. You can inquire with your own banking institution or credit union.

Payment is due upon enrollment, or a payment plan is available. If you choose the payment plan, you must register by fax or mail.
