The paralegal associate’s degree and paralegal studies certificate have become even more affordable. While American National University was able to reduce the costs of the program, ANU has retained its characteristic instructional quality as both programs are still approved by the American Bar Association. ANU reduced costs by making previously mandatory classes optional, though these classes are still available for enrollment.
The paralegal associate’s degree now costs $21,528 before consideration of any financial aid*, with all costs included. The paralegal studies certificate is now $10,640, all-inclusive, before financial aid*. The certificate is best for individuals who already hold a college degree and are looking for more career-focused skills.
Paralegal associate’s students must complete 92 credit hours (20 months) and paralegal studies certificate students must complete 28 credit hours (8 months). With the ability to transfer relevant credits up to 75% of the program total, students can complete either program in even less time.
