Reapproval or Interim Application Reports
In 2014 the ABA introduced the ABA Paralegal Education Program Approval Process Reporting System for submission of all reporting forms. The Standing Committee will no longer accept any reporting forms in paper format. All applications for approval and/or reapproval, and interim report forms, are required to be submitted through the online Reporting System. Please contact us with any questions concerning the Approval/Reapproval/Interim Report process (312-988-5757).
Once a program is approved, it is required to submit interim reports as required by the Guidelines to ensure that it continues to comply with the Guidelines. Annual fees are paid during the term of approval by all ABA approved programs. Before the end of its seven-year approval period, the institution must submit an application for reapproval if it wishes the program to retain its approved status.
