The American Bar Association’s average passage rate for first-time takers who took the exam in February 2017 was 45% with schools in other categories coming in significantly lower. ALU is proud to announce that their passage rate is higher than the average rate recorded for test takers coming from California ABA schools, as well as schools from all other categories. With a passage rate of 50%, ALU managed to outpace its own category (unaccredited distance learning) by 32%.

At the average school you won’t be able to leave with a credential using your G.I. BILL.
The VA will pay for certification exams. To be more specific they will reimburse you for the cost of the test with proof of an attempt. You can take a test as many times as you want, and the VA will pay even if you fail.
