Paralegal Studies Program Overview

The University of Providence has partnered with the U.S. Army and Air Force to provide bachelor’s level paralegal education to their enlisted personnel at a special tuition rate.

These programs are approved by the American Bar Association and the online format is accessible and flexible, preparing Army and Air Force paralegals for more challenging paralegal positions or for law school. Find out how University of Providence can help you advance your military career.

The values of character, competence, and commitment have been part of UP’s mission since its founding in 1932.  An education from UP combines critical thinking with an emphasis on real-world, practical applications. Students can take innovative, integrated learning classes, in which professors from diverse fields teach courses together.

The legal and paralegal studies program was recently voted Best in State by ParalegalEDU.org.

Air Force Paralegal

The University of Providence Air Force Paralegal Program is an Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) program partner. AU-ABC directs Airmen with associate degrees from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) to accredited “military friendly” colleges and universities to consider when completing a four-year degree. The program maximizes the application of military career education and training, and provides a multitude of online academic and support services.

The UP Legal and Paralegal Studies program is an American Bar Association approved paralegal program. By leveraging your CCAF Paralegal degree, you can earn a Bachelor of Science degree online by requiring no more (and perhaps fewer).

Army Paralegal

The University of Providence and The Judge Advocate General’s Learning Center and School (TJAGLCS) have enjoyed a partnership since 2004. By working with TJAGLCS, UP is the only American Bar Association (ABA) approved paralegal studies program to provide Paralegal Specialists (27D) with an opportunity to complete an associate degree or bachelor of science in Legal and Paralegal Studies online.

ABA approved Paralegal Studies programs require students seeking an Associate or Bachelor’s degree in Paralegal Studies to complete 10 credit hours of paralegal instruction in a traditional in-class (not distance learning) setting. By working closely with the Army JAG Corps, UP’s program allows you to meet the ABA in-class requirement by completing 27D10 AIT. The remainder of the degree can be completed on-line through UP.
