Traditional for profit court reporting schools' tuition costs range from $25,000 to $57,000. You may be surprised to learn that these colleges of court reporting and court reporting schools have 85% to 90% dropout rates and average graduation rates of 2 to 14 percent. Many factors contribute to these court reporting colleges' and schools' high tuition costs including but not limited to large administrative staffs consisting of financial aid officers, commissioned admissions representatives, deans and other administrators that are rarely from the court reporting professions and rarely are credentialed court reporters themselves. Most of these court reporting colleges and schools are owned by corporations with no affiliation to court reporters or court reporting education and often confer an Occupational Associate's Degree that will not transfer to an actual college or university. Bear in mind, no degree is required for any of the careers of court reporting, broadcast (closed) captioning, or CART providing.
Community colleges cost substantially less than for profit or proprietary court reporting schools, but are also rarely staffed by credentialed court reporters and require non-essential academics and Associate's Degrees that once again are not required for any of these three careers.
The Court Reporting and Captioning at Home training program is affordable and owned and staffed by credentialed court reporters, captioners, or CART Providers. Learn More
