Note: I'm an online-only student, which limits what I can give feedback about.

I'm in the online paralegal certificate program, which I decided to apply for after seeing the stellar reviews. This program definitely lives up to its reputation. The professors are great, and the content is a great mix of practical and theoretical. I'm especially a fan of PL112, which is a crash course in using the WestLaw database - a fun but extremely practical class that I'm really glad I took, because I think it'll help me the most in my future career. If you're considering the paralegal certificate program, you can't go wrong here.
This is only my third week at SMWC as an online student, but even after going to campus once and emailing and talking to professors, registrars, and my advisor I absolutely love it. Everyone strives to help you succeed and are really helpful and also very understanding. Everyone I know that has gone here was right! It is a beautiful amazing college. Everybody empowers each other and I’ve met some incredible folks.
