Program Details

Ocean County College offers an online Legal Secretary Certificate which prepares students to work in law offices.  The function of the legal secretary is to organize legal correspondence and documents to assist lawyers in their research.  Likewise, maintaining a calendar and detailed files are of paramount importance.  Required courses include Word Processing, Keyboarding/Document Processing I and II, Word Processing Applications, Business Law I, Real Estate Law, Integrated Office Software, and Law Office Management.

Ocean County College offers a variety of engaging and professionally insightful online courses that can be taken as part of a complete degree program, or on an individual class-by-class basis.  These comprehensive educational programs are designed for students of any age.  Daily schedules make regular campus visits difficult for many busy individuals; therefore, Ocean County College offers an e-learning environment.  This innovative platform allows the student to take charge of their schedule and participation through an integration of communication services in an easy-to-use software system.  The online courses follow the same academic calendar as the on-campus classes.  

Online programs provide advising in areas such as course selection as well as transfer and career options.  The e-learning software is called the Pearson Learning Studio and the student works closely with an admissions specialist and/or an academic advisor to prepare a schedule that works well.  Once admitted into the school, the student will receive an acceptance package that informs how to login to Ocean Cruiser.  Ocean Cruiser allows access to WEBADVISOR so that searching for courses and registering is easy.  It is also recommended that upon successful registration, a Student Orientation Tutorial be viewed so that all questions and expectations for online courses are made clear.
