Good news!  We have been accepted as a NALA testing center for the Certified Paralegal exam!  The exam will be administered over two afternoons – Friday September 21 and Saturday September 22.  The test begins at 1:30 pm both days, and takes about 4 hours each day.  The testing fee is $125. 

Sorry for the short notice, but according to information from NALA the deadline for receipt of application forms from examinees is August 1, 2012. Applications will be accepted from August 2 through close of business August 10, with a $25 late fee. Click the link below for application information.

 The fee is due on the first day of the exam and must be paid by check (made payable to COD) or credit card. Examinees are required to be present 30 minutes prior to the stated exam start time for check-in and instructions. 

Examinees must arrive at the Testing Center, BIC 2405 at 1:00pm! Photo ID is required for testing.

NALA wants COD to send them a list individuals who are planning on taking the test.  If you plan on taking the test,  contact Sherry Machacek at COD,, no later than August 13, so she can advise NALA accordingly. Any questions about the test itself, contact NALA directly.
