Capper & Marilou Grant Paralegal Scholarships

The Capper and Marilou Grant Paralegal Scholarship recognizes, through scholarship, a paralegal student who demonstrated personal and academic growth. Applicants must be enrolled in, or intending to enroll, in his/her final year, imminent to graduation. Applicants must submit an unofficial copy of his/her transcript(s). Applicants must demonstrate academic improvement over a period of time. Applicants must demonstrate extra curricular involvement which arose out of the Paralegal Studies curriculum, or otherwise through other community service or college extra-curricular activity.

(Note: LEX induction is not required, but may be a considering factor in the review process.) Applicants must provide an essay (500-750 words; double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 font), in which s/he, through narrative, describes the growth experience and the impact such growth has, or will have, on his/her future. Recipients will not have received, during the same award cycle, additional paralegal scholarship(s). Award not based on need.

2 awards at $500 each

Environmental Law – Fall 2018 Online Class

Environmental Law

has been added to the fall schedule – a 12-week class starting September 11. ONLINE.

This is the last semester that out-of-district students can take online classes at the in-district rate. Beginning in Spring 2019, out-of-district students will pay the higher tuition rate for online classes, just as they have to do for face-to-face classes.

So this will be the last chance for out-of-district students to pay in-district rates for online classes.

In Spring 2019, the rates will be the same as they are for Fall 2018 – $136/credit hour for in-district students, and $323/credit hour for out-of-district students – for all classes, whether they are face-to-face, online, hybrid, or anything else.
