Transfer credit may be available for courses taken at another paralegal program, or at an ABA-accredited law school, before applying to the Institute. The courses must be comparable to specific Institute paralegal courses, including instruction in practical paralegal skills. Transfer credit is limited to 6 semester credits toward a paralegal certificate, while 24 semester credits may be applied toward the paralegal major in the B.A. in Paralegal Studies program option.
University policy requires that the institution offering the paralegal program be regionally accredited. The student must have earned a grade of C- or higher. The student must submit an official transcript confirming the grade, and may be required to provide documentation of the course content and format.
Here are the colleges that have transfer guide agreements with Institute for Paralegal Studies:
- College of DuPage
- College of Lake County
- Elgin Community College
- Harper College
- Oakton Community College
