The Paralegal Studies Program offers the Post-Baccalaureate Program in three different formats: a full-time day program and a part-time evening program at Roosevelt University's Gage Building, located at 18 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago; and a Saturdays-online program at our suburban Schaumburg, Illinois campus. The Post-Baccalaureate Program is a non-credit certificate program. Students must have completed their bachelor’s degree before starting classes in order to be eligible for this program. Apply for the Post-Baccalaureate Program.
The Chicago Full-Time Day Program is an intensive format held during the day consisting of 24 semester hours of course work. Students complete their certificate requirements in an 18-week session which lasts approximately 4 and 1/2 months.
The Chicago Part-Time Evening Program is designed for students to complete the program within one year by taking three classes in the fall and spring semesters and two classes in the summer semester.
The Schaumburg-Online Program is offered in part on the Schaumburg campus and in part on line. Courses will be offered in eight week sessions in which students will take one Saturday class and one online course offering the maximum number of online courses permitted within American Bar Association Guidelines.

The American Bar Association does not approve fully online programs. Accordingly, this program may not be completed entirely in an online format. However, certain courses in the program are offered online as indicated in the course descriptions and course schedules. In order to maintain consistency with ABA requirements, students are required to take at least ten semester credits or the equivalent, of legal specialty courses through traditional classroom instruction. Our Saturdays In Schaumburg/Online format offers the maximum number of online courses permitted within American Bar Association Guidelines.
Admission for Non-Certificate or Non-Degree Seeking Students: Graduates of the Paralegal Studies Program are invited to take additional classes in the program. Graduates wishing to do so should contact the Paralegal Studies Program office for registration information. All other individuals wishing to take classes in the program must apply to the program and pursue one of the available program options.
