Court Reporting (AOS)

Our Court Reporting program allows students to study at the Associate degree level, with the goal of becoming skillful stenographers ready for the legal world. Students of this new program will hone their typing skills to 225 words per minute in our stenotype courses, and study legal terminology and court procedures to prepare them for a versatile career.

Plaza College is dedicated to advancing the Court Reporting profession and connecting our students to their future colleagues and reporting agencies. Each year, the College hosts an annual Court Reporting Symposium, bringing together working reporters from across the country to network and advocate for their profession.

Plaza Stories

David “I chose to attend Plaza College because my aunt graduated from Plaza a few years ago and she always told me about how great the school was. To me, being a Plaza student means that I know I have to work hard towards what I want to achieve, and with the help of the professors and staff, I will be able to reach my goals.”
