Paralegal Admissions Process - Capital University Law School

Paralegal Admissions Process


     December 7, 2018 is the deadline to apply for the Spring 2019 cohort.  Classes start January 8, 2019.  There is still time to apply!

    We know that the decision to attend a graduate program is not one you should take lightly. Investigate. Gather information. Compare programs. Talk to others in the legal community about Capital, the paralegal profession, and what career options this choice may hold for you.

    Our admissions process is simple. We admit new students on a rolling basis. You may start in the fall or spring in the Evening Program, or in the summer as a Summer Immersion student. We encourage all students to apply early, and at least one month before the start of a new term. After receiving your application, we will schedule an admissions meeting with the Director of the Paralegal Programs.

    We require that all applicants have a four-year, baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. We also consider a number of factors when admitting students into the program, such as your undergraduate GPA, work history, references, community involvement, co-curricular activities, and a personal statement about why the legal profession interests you.

    If you have an undergraduate GPA below 2.7, we may admit you into the program on a conditional basis. If you are conditionally admitted, you must maintain a GPA of 2.3 or higher in the first semester of the Paralegal Program to continue in the program. If you receive below a 2.3 GPA, the Director of Paralegal Programs may academically withdraw you from the program.
