One of the main points of attending college is being immediately prepared for some type of career after graduation. Key College is a private college in Dania, Florida, that prepares its students for the workplace by offering intensive programs in a variety of fields. There is a program for Computed Aided Design, Medical Administration, and Paralegal, but the school is famous for its Court Reporting Program, which has been nationally known since the 1970s.

Each of the different programs offered at Key College provide students with a fast-track degree and the opportunity to jump into the workforce immediately. The Paralegal Program is an 18-month course of study that results in a student earning an Associate in Science degree in Paralegal studies. Courses in law are actually taught by attorneys, who work as lawyers as well as teaching at the college, so information is up-to-date and extremely beneficial as insight. The National Association of Legal Assistants approves both the college and the specific program of study, so if being a paralegal is something that has always interested you, this is a great way to get your foot in the door.

The most famous program on campus, however, is the Court Reporting Program. Its record for job retention is unparalleled, and offers the sort of intensive training necessary to start out at the top of a field. This 27-month long program is well known among the court reporting world, and Key College is accredited both by the Accrediting Commission of Independent Colleges and Schools as well as the National Court Reporting Association.

Key College takes its training and instruction so seriously that it is willing to offer a warranty of sorts for students, meaning that you are promised job placement and the highest level of learning in your chosen field. For those who are career-minded and looking for an opportunity to start a worthwhile career with staying power, the programs offered here are definitely of interest.

Most Popular Fields of Study


A private college, Key College has a more selective admissions process than some other junior colleges or community colleges. Because the school is more geared towards a specific field of interest, the admissions process is slightly more selective. Students must provide high school diploma or GED proof, and after filling out an application, will often need to be ready for a personal interview or some sort of skills level placement test. Having said that, admissions are not of the level that deserves being described as “rigorous” and most students who apply themselves will find that getting into Key College is a relatively straightforward and easy process.

Financial Aid

Many students need financial aid to attend school, and those students at Key College are no exception. The school participates in Title IV Federal Assistance, meaning that federal grants and loans, as well as state grants, help to finance many student’s education. The most important thing you can do if you are in need of financial assistance is to fill out and complete all of the necessary documents to determine your eligibility. Be sure to carefully read the instructions on the FAFSA so that you don’t do anything that could delay your receiving assistance.

Some of the federal assistance that students can apply for includes ACG Grants, PELL Grants, the Florida Student Assistance Grant, Stafford Loans, and SEOG Grants. In addition to those forms of aid, Key College offers a number of scholarships on its own, including institutional scholarships for students who are changing careers, known by the school as nontraditional students. Scholarships can be need or merit based, and more information can be obtained by scheduling an appointment with one of the school’s admissions counselors. For first-time college students who show academic promise, there are also merit and need based scholarships available with the same criteria.
