Online Paralegal Studies Program

International Students

Boston University

Boston University’s Metropolitan College (MET) offers the practical, rigorous online Paralegal Studies Certificate Program to adult learners around the globe looking to enhance their professional opportunities.

Registration for the program requires no transcript, GPA, or minimum test score requirement. However, students must have high-level reading and writing skills in English to complete the necessary coursework.

International students need only complete the registration process to secure their spot in the program. Students must finish this process three works prior to each new term to provide adequate time for material preparation and the completion of the online orientation.

As the program is offered entirely online and is not for-credit, Boston University will not issue any documents needed to obtain a non-immigrant student visa. International students should also note that the coursework is entirely based on the United States legal system. The U.S. legal system is based on the common law of Great Britain. The laws are derived from a series of checks and balances between the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary. The laws of all three branches are discussed as is the balance between the Federal government and the individual States.
