When deciding on the right paralegal school for your needs, it’s important to weigh all the factors. At NWCC, our curriculum truly puts students first.

Short A.A.S. Program

Educational excellence is a top priority at Northwest Career College. Our paralegal classes were designed to provide students with a solid legal foundation in a reasonable amount of time. For most students, the paralegal studies program is completed in about 18 months. This means it takes less than 2 years to complete the graduation requirements for an Associate of Applied Science.

Distance Learning

Many students list transportation and accessibility as a barrier to going back to school. At NWCC, we’ve made it our mission to remove these barriers by providing distance learning opportunities. A number of our paralegal classes are held virtually, which is a convenient option for busy parents and working adults.


When thinking about earning a college degree, mounting tuition bills might come to mind. Unlike other schools, Northwest Career College makes education affordable. For less than the cost of many state schools, students receive a quality education in paralegal studies taught by experienced legal professionals.

Variety of Classes

In addition to general graduation requirements, the paralegal school at NWCC provides students with an opportunity to explore legal sub-specialties. We offer classes in probate law, real estate, family law, criminal law and other related subjects. By completing the program, students are better able to make informed decisions about their professional future.

Career Services

At NWCC, we value our students and want to help you succeed in your new profession. That’s why our Career Services division provides guidance and support to graduates entering the workforce.
