Applications for the Paralegal program are accepted each year between March 1st and July 31st for the September start date, and between October 1st and January 31st for the February/March start date.
To be admitted into the Oak Brook College paralegal program, interested parties must complete the application for admission before the application deadline. Once received, all applications are reviewed by the admissions committee with respect to three factors: (1) academic qualifications; (2) commitment to the purposes and mission of the College; and (3) familiarity with certain Biblical principles of life.
1. Academic Qualifications. Oak Brook College assesses the academic qualifications of each applicant by examining the applicant's academic record, test scores, work history, and three personal reference evaluations. Work experience in a law-related field is helpful but not necessary.
In order to be considered for admission into the program, an applicant must achieve a score of at least 50 on the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) College Composition exam or the applicant must have completed an equivalent college-level composition course.
Applicants must register to take the CLEP examinations directly with the College Board and request that score reports be submitted by the College Board to Oak Brook College. The score recipient code for Oak Brook College is 7675. Copies of informational brochures and registration forms are available at local colleges and universities, or by contacting:
The College Board
P. O. Box 6600
Princeton, NJ 08541-6600
2. Commitment to the Purposes and Mission of the College. The Applications Committee seeks applicants who share a commitment to the mission of Oak Brook College. Evidence of an applicant's commitment to the goals of the College is found in personal reference recommendations, application responses, personal character qualities, and by the applicant's motivation for studying law.
Three personal evaluations are required for an application. The evaluation form can be downloaded by clicking here. This form must be used for the evaluation. You may not use an evaluator that is related to you. Your pastor is to be used as one of the three required evaluators. If you happen to be related to your pastor please contact us directly. The remaining two required evaluations may be completed by a friend, co-worker, surpervisor, etc. The forms may be faxed (preferable), mailed or e-mailed to the college. If an evaluation form arrives without the applicant's information completed it will be discarded.
