Welcome to the BridgeValley Community and Technical College Paralegal Studies program! 

The facilities for BridgeValley Community and Technical College are located in South Charleston and Montgomery, West Virginia.  Currently the college is known as "Kanawha Valley Community and Technical College" (click here to visit their website) and also "Bridgemont Community and Technical College" (click here to visit their website), but, starting in August 2014, those two entities will complete their merger and change their name to BridgeValley Community and Technical College.  

All of the aforementioned institutions are part of the West Virginia State College and University System.  BridgeValley is a full accredited institution, and the college offers, among other programs, a two year associate degree in Paralegal Studies. The BridgeValley Paralegal Studies program has been designed by a lawyer who is a member of the West Virginia State Bar and who is admitted to practice law in multiple state and federal jurisdictions. 

Graduates of the BridgeValley Paralegal Studies program can, upon successful completion of the program and the Paralegal Core Competency Examination, become Registered Paralegals through the National Federation of Paralegal Associations.  Upon their graduation from BridgeValley, BridgeValley Paralegal graduates can complete two additional years of study to obtain a baccalaureate degree at a partnering institution through a 2+2 agreement.  (Click here for more information regarding how students can do that.) 

Paralegals are people who work in the legal profession.  While many paralegals work for lawyers, there are a number of other occupations that paralegals can and do work in.  (Click here for a listing of different types of job opportunities that paralegals have.)  

BridgeValley's Paralegal Studies program is very affordable and it takes 60 credit hours to complete.  (Click here for information on the cost of attending BridgeValley.)  (Click here for a listing of the course requirements in the BridgeValley Paralegal Studies program.)  

There are numerous financial aid opportunities available to assist students who wish to attend BridgeValley. (Click here for a listing of different scholarship opportunities that are available to those students who wish to enroll in BridgeValley's Paralegal Studies program.)
