Peirce College offers an online BA in Paralegal which I am very interested in. It's even approved by the American Bar Associatioin. The problem is that the American Bar Associatioin requires four of the classes be taken in the classroom (not on-line). I found the four classes that I need at my local University. Now-
can I get student aid/loans to cover the four classes I have to take at a traditional University that I do not intend to be admitted to? I just need the four classes as a part-timer and they would cost $1400 per class!!

Hi Jennifer,

Why do you not want to be admitted to your local university? Many colleges will allow cross-enrollment, but you will need to contact your school to find out its policy and to complete the proper forms. You can't receive student aid for college courses taken independently of enrollment.
