Court Reporting

Earn a degree with a 100% job placement rate

You’ve seen high-profile trials with a person keying the testimony into a steno-graph machine or read the scrolling captions for the hearing-impaired on your TV screen. The person recording the spoken words at speeds ranging from 180 to 225 words a minute is a court reporter. If you’re an excellent listener, have strong language and communications skills, and are committed to accuracy and confidentiality, a career in court reporting may be a perfect fit for you.

This program is available 100% online within the iFlex instructional mode. Students are able to attend classes from home. NOTE: A minimum internet connection speed of 3 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload is required. The computer must use Windows 7 or newer operating system.

Designed to fit your life schedule, iFlex scheduling provides flexibility to attend courses through a blend of online and face-to-face, totally online, or flexing between these two modes on a weekly basis.

Students will have identical learning components (assessments and lecture materials, whether sitting in the classroom, attending synchronously through videoconferencing, or learning online).

This iFlex program is scheduled efficiently and reduces student travel to campus, with a mix of in-person class days and online instruction

This program is available 100% online within the iFlex instructional mode.
