The School of Law in its entirety is being relocated to Northcentral University (NCU). This means that the current dean of JFK School of Law, and all faculty, will be relocating to NCU along with our School of Law programs (JD and BA Legal Studies/Paralegal Cert Programs). The School of Law will remain the John F. Kennedy School of Law at Northcentral University, bringing with it the legacy, vision and mission, and values of the law school.
NCU is an accredited, not-for-profit, fully online institution, with over 11,000 students in 6 different schools. The JFK School of Law will be its 7th. Both the President and Provost of NCU are attorneys and committed to quality, affordable, and accessible legal education. Given NCU’s expertise in online education and fiscal stability, this move will allow for much greater long-term security and growth for the law school.
We do not anticipate any accreditation changes for the ABA, and applications to accreditors have been filed for the accreditations to transfer to NCU along with the programs. The ABA has approved the transfer of approval to NCU for both programs.
Here are the updated tuition discounts for students who choose to continue on at NCU:
- Students that are currently in the JFK Law School will maintain their current rates through spring term.
- Students who transfer to NCU will be given a tuition rate of 300$ per unit for all BA and Paralegal Cert courses.
If you students do not wish to continue with NCU, we are working to establish articulation agreements with the following local options.
