As a Paralegal Associate’s degree or post-degree Certificate student at Rasmussen University, you gain the career-relevant skills you need to provide services in all phases of the legal system — including courts, law firms and government agencies — under the supervision of an attorney. After you graduate, you can take the National Certified Legal Assistant/Paralegal Examination (CLA/CP Exam) to become a certified paralegal and Rasmussen University will reimburse the application fee for the first attempt.
We understand you have a busy lifestyle and believe that shouldn't keep you from earning the degree you need to move forward in your career—that's why we offer a variety of ways to earn your Paralegal Associate’s degree on a schedule that fits your lifestyle.
As a student, our program can help you:
- Save time and money on your Associate's degree with self-directed assessments. These $149 online assessments allow you to prove that you already have the knowledge for a particular course and don't need to take it.
- Learn essential writing and critical-thinking skills employers seek.
- Benefit from a capstone course, with a civil or criminal course track, and learn through advanced analysis, research and writing projects, then demonstrate your mastery of the content and apply specialized theory, skills and concepts.
- Prepare for and take the CLA/CP Exam — and the cost of your first attempt is reimbursed.
