Anne-Marie Shaffer, NPC student

Everyone has been amazing to work with at NPC! Someone was always there to walk me through the entire process and to let me know if there was an issue that needed my attention. My professors are wonderful. My mentor has been invaluable. I think every school should be this awesome. I'm already feeling like I will get through this successfully and that I might want to pursue a bachelor's degree.

Marisa Janke, NPC graduate

I really had a wonderful experience with the school… I appreciate your time and careful consideration to the organization of this program. I have endeavored a few different post-high-school / community college schools but this was by far the most competent, accessible, flexible, and attentive experience I have had. I want to personally thank Professor Haas, Professor Rovinsky, and Professor Sandler particularly for being such brilliant leaders and educators.

Beth Evans, NPC graduate and paralegal

NPC paved the way for me to be currently working in a litigation firm in Los Angeles. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with my NPC experience! It prepared me so well for actual paralegal practice.

Nirian Rivera, NPC and NJU graduate

I am proud to say that my dedication and studies at NPC/NJU have helped me accomplish my goals in education. I am currently a student at Northcentral University in the doctoral program in Criminal Justice, specializing in Homeland Security. If it would not have been for my professors, mentors and staff at NPC and NJU (especially Stephen Haas, Esq.), I definitely would have not gotten this far. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Cathy Thrift, NPC graduate and paralegal

I am learning so much… I have also become the closing paralegal for the Department of Transportation for a very large project for them in which our firm is their attorney… I look forward to going to work every morning… If I can ever do anything for NPC, please let me know. NPC provided me with an amazing education and an excitement for law. (DeDe Sandler had a lot to do with that too.) Please share my thanks to all.

Lisa Easter, NPC graduate

I graduated in August of last year and I just wanted to tell you guys thank you so much. I got my associate's and my bachelor's degrees through your program, I'm applying to law school, and I've also been hired on as the law office manager at a firm here in Katy Texas. Thank you, guys!

Melanie Talley, NPC graduate and paralegal

Thank you so much for helping me achieve my goals. NPC provided me the tools to learn and the support to succeed. Thank you for being a college that allowed me to work full time, raise my family, and obtain an invaluable education. My life is forever changed for the better.

Malinda Scott, NPC graduate and paralegal

… I was called back into my boss's office and I was told that I wasn't an office assistant but a paralegal. My boss's exact words were "you are a paralegal." Professor Haas, I finally felt validated for all the hard work I put into my degree from NPC… I am gaining confidence every day and loving my job. (I’ve never loved my job before.) Again, I just wanted to thank you and NPC. Without the education I received, there is no way I would have been offered this opportunity nor would I have had the confidence to even jump into this situation… I even recommend NPC to anyone who mentions to me that they are thinking of becoming a paralegal!!!

Teresa Negron, NPC graduate and NFPA Registered Paralegal®

Hi Stephen; I wanted to update you with the good news… I passed the PACE Exam!… Just wanted to say that even though I took an 8-week review course and purchased a huge textbook to prepare me for my exam, nothing prepared me for the exam like my education at NPC… The rest was garnered from years of experience and my legal education. In fact, I referenced my former class materials from NPC in order to prepare for the test and get me through the coursework. I am now one of 4 federally Registered Paralegals® in Northeast Ohio!

Evelyn Stoner, NPC student and paralegal

I also wanted to tell you that at a recent interview, they commented on NPC being on my resume. She said they've been seeing a lot of graduates from NPC lately, and from what they've been able to tell, it's quite an impressive school.

AuBriana Morency, NPC student

Thank you so much for an awesome class! You helped make my experience at NPC wonderful during these past 6 months. I am considering going after my Associates in Paralegal Studies next year and will definitely contact NPC regarding my options.

NPC graduate Amanda Flatt, paralegal at Clark & Washington in Nashville, TN.

I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience at NPC. I wanted to let you know that next week, I will be starting my first job as a Paralegal at Clark & Washington bankruptcy law firm! Thank you so much for the wonderful learning experience. I really enjoyed all my professors and learned so much. I will forever be grateful for NPC and all the professors.

Myra Glover, NPC student and paralegal

Thank you for your assistance and support during my courses at NPC. As I am completing my last class this evening in Trust Drafting with you, I wanted to send a note of gratitude…

I have called myself a nontraditional student but after completing the program, I have decided a "nontraditional" descriptive no longer exists in education. Regardless of age and career, we should always be learning and expanding our knowledge. As life gives us changes in our journey, knowledge and enlightenment allow for challenges to be met in a positive environment through education.

Because of the training and education I have received, today I worked on an estate plan for one of our firm's clients and took notes during the voir dire of an upcoming trial of a client. NPC prepared me to assist my attorney with this very different legal areas. As a paralegal, our tasks and responsibilities vary and we must be prepared to assist as needed.

Theresa "Tara" Burnworth, NPC student

National Paralegal College is by far the best education I have received. I love that the courses are online and the flexibility of being able to listen to the class recordings at a later time for review or if I am unable to attend the live online class. The teachers in each class not only give you the information you need they make it fun and entertaining to learn. I achieved my goal of an associate's degree in one year and have decided to continue on to finish my bachelor's program. I look forward to my future classes and my future career as a paralegal.

Sharon Rhea, NPC graduate

I absolutely love NPC! I love that the classes are interactive with very knowledgeable professors. I have to write letters to prosecutors asking for reduction in sentences or dismissals, while the thought of that scared me, I reviewed several of their letters written by paralegals that had many years experience, I immediately recognized that it was IRAC! I knew I could breathe, as I had plenty of knowledge writing IRAC style due to our assignments at NPC. The other thing that I am completely confident in is searching case law. I never thought that I could be where I am today, being in an industry that I truly love and that keeps me captivated, but all thanks to NPC! I can honestly say that I love my job and I highly recommend National Paralegal College to anyone wanting to enter the legal field.

Daniel Flores, NPC student

I wanted to tell you that this has been one of great experience in life and the school is fantastic. I definitely feel like I have learned a lot over the past 20 plus months. You [Dean Stephen Haas] personally have been very helpful as well with any issues that I have had and I want to thank you as well… Thanks again.

Gwendolyn Payton, NJU graduate and first-year law student

Attending NJU was a Godsend. It gave me the legal knowledge, analytical skills and writing skills that will be invaluable in my next few years of law school. I am very blessed to have had this opportunity. I thank you for your expeditious responses. Much success to you and NJU!

The professors are amazing. They are very knowledgeable and willing to help the students. Dean Jeremy, Professor Emily, Professor Glazer, Professor Daniel and Professor Ellis are worth their weight in gold. What a well versed group of instructors. Each of them not only motivated me to learn the subject matter, but through their knowledge, I gained a passion for the subject matter. They all made learning worthwhile. I even started dreaming about cases from Con Law. LOL. Also, your book on Wills and Estates is such an easy read. What an outstanding job an invaluable book to add to that class. It made learning fun. NJU was truly an invaluable learning and life experience for me. Finishing up is bitter sweet for me. It feels great to finish up. However, I am sad to leave such a positive and rewarding learning environment. I will always cherish this opportunity.

Mary Lopez, NPC graduate

I have been accepted into Taft Law School and I could not have done it without National Paralegal College! Thank you!

Myra Glover, NPC student

Working in higher Ed for 22 years in my prior career, NPC has incredible offerings as well as instructors. The online process and website is second to none. The support and ability to communicate is stronger than some residential schools. I am getting my money's worth! Again, thank you.

Radha Patturajan, NPC student

This class (Legal Document Preparation) helped us understand how to draft documents in variety of fields. I was so apprehensive at the beginning as I was completely new to this field. However, our professors put us at ease and helped us gain confidence in drafting the documents so professionally. I am forever indebted to you all. My mentor Connie has also been a strong pillar of support, helping me understand the nuances of this field, since I was a novice… Thank you all at NPC !! You totally rock!! I am looking forward to more studies at NPC!

Quetada Kehrhahn, NPC graduate and paralegal

I'm currently employed with the Housing Authority. My degree has given me a great deal of "kudos," so to speak, with my boss… If it weren't for my degree from NPC, I don't think I'd get as much respect as I do from my boss. I'm glad I get to utilize the legal aspect of life with this job. If it weren't for those contract classes, CFR regulations and real estate law, I don't think I would've been able to catch on to my job the way I have in less than a year.

Debra Neidiffer, NPC graduate and paralegal

I was offered a paralegal position with Schulz Stephenson Law, a family law firm located in Beaufort, NC. I… received the engagement letter offering the position today… I also want to thank you again for helping me accomplish my goal. You guys are amazing!!

Christine Berman, NPC Student

You should be very proud of the college that you run, because it is amazing. My mother-in-law was a dean at Nevada State College here in Las Vegas and she even has a PhD in education, and I was telling her about this school and the things I described in my last e-mail and she was impressed, and she really knows about education all levels. (I let her pick what schools were the best for my kids.) So take that as a huge compliment.

Again, I want to thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to help me with all of my problems. When anyone asks me about my college and my experience, I have a couple things to say:

  1. I was completely shocked; when I was dealing with everything, the college took the time to reach out to see why I was MIA. Most colleges don't do that.
  2. Everyone whom I have dealt with in the last 6 months or so has been amazing.
  3. That my mentor is my rock; she puts up with me and I love her to death.
  4. That the dean/director of the college is so approachable and will answer the students and help with issues. Just to give you a little idea of my experience with this school, I have gone to a community college and a regular brick-and-mortar 4-year university and I have also done some of the other cheap online schools, and none of my experiences hold a match to this experience. You are amazing and you have amazing people under you.

Cheryl McCall, NPC student

After attending [another school], I still felt there was no way I was qualified to work for anyone. I was so surprised to get an A in your class because it was so much more detailed and intense. I felt really out of my league. The opportunities to have not one but 2 awesome instructors, an unbelievable mentor, and the different ways the information is presented made it all possible. I now know when I graduate from NPC with my B.S. I will be an asset to whomever I work for. Thank you for giving me my confidence back. I have learned more in the couple of months here at NPC than in 2 years at [another school]. I am grateful to be part of the experience of NPC.

Aleta Utterback, NPC student

This is my last class for Bachelors Degree… Wish I could be a student at NPC forever!!

Gail Keller, NPC graduate

I just wanted to let you know I finally got a job in the legal field – right in my first choice area – estate planning, trusts, wills administration, probate… Thank you so much for my education in legal studies. You're the best!… Thank you so much for being such an awesome teacher! You were so entertaining in your teaching and so understanding with me as a student.

Erin Quinn, NPC student

I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about NPC. The professionalism, attentiveness and service you provide students is outstanding. I will without a doubt recommend this program and school!

Kristina Forgrave, NPC graduate and legal assistant, Smith Debnam Narron Drake Saintsing & Myers, LLP, Raleigh, NC

I have truly enjoyed your college. I can only say good things about your program, professors, and especially you [Stephen], because you always respond so quickly and are always so helpful. It has been challenging handling school, work and family, but well worth it.

Twilla S. Gieschen, NPC graduate and paralegal for Nolan, Caddell and Reynolds, Fort Smith, AR

I have NPC to thank for my job here! I started in January… and will soon be celebrating my 1 year anniversary here… with the experience I gained [at NPC, I] was able to move to my current firm… I am so happy to be graduating from NPC next month!

David Martin, NPC graduate and current law school student

I love NPC. I earned my bachelor's from NPC, and I will forever be a lobbyist for NPC's outstanding programs, professors and staff… I just want you to know that I appreciate everything that everyone at NPC has done for me over the years from the professors, to my mentor, to the admissions and financial aid department, and beyond. I hate to part so suddenly, but I look forward to returning as a professor myself one day :). I'll contact you when I graduate law school.

Timothy Wilday, NPC graduate and current master's student at NJU, graduate division of NPC

The undergraduate and graduate programs have given me essential skill sets to work in the legal field.
