Paralegal Transfer Options to Complete a Four-Year Degree
JCCC's Paralegal program has options for you to complete a four-year college degree.
- If you want to earn both a four-year college degree and a paralegal certificate JCCC's Paralegal program has options for you.
- If you have a two-year associate's degree and a paralegal certificate and want to finish your four-year college degree, JCCC's Paralegal program has options for you.
If you have earned both an associate's degree and a paralegal certificate at JCCC, requiring 64 hours of college credit, you may transfer to one of the five schools listed here to earn a four-year degree. All of the schools listed have transfer or completion agreements with JCCC's Paralegal program and will accept all or most of the 65 credit hours earned through that program. Depending on the college or university selected, you will need to earn 40 to 60 upper-level college credits to receive a bachelor's degree. You must pay the tuition charged by the college or university granting the four-year degree, even if the classes are taught at JCCC.
