  • Title: Accreditation & Approvals
    Descriptive info: Why is accreditation important? Although graduating from an accredited program does not guarantee jobs or licensure for individuals, it may facilitate such achievement.. It reflects the quality by which an educational institution or a program conducts its business.. It speaks to a sense of public trust, as well as to professional quality.. As a student, accreditation provides assurance that the program in which you are enrolled or are considering enrolling is engaged in continuous review and improvement of its quality, that it meets nationally endorsed standards in the profession, and that it is accountable for achieving what it sets out to do.. Accreditation is an important credential to look for when choosing a college.. If you have credits to transfer from another accredited institution, you will want to make sure both schools have accreditation that allows you to transfer credits back and forth.. Accreditation is also important for your degree to be widely recognized by employers and professional associations.. Accreditation is an assurance to students and the public that an institution meets or exceeds standards for quality of faculty, curriculum, learner services, and fiscal stability..  ...   Degree Diplomas September 1989..

  • Title: History
    Descriptive info: It all started when Kay Moody saw an opportunity to improve court reporting education throughout Northwest Indiana, a vision which has allowed high school graduates and working adults to earn their associate degree in court reporting.. Moody began teaching the College of Court Reporting's first students in the living room of her home here in Hobart, Indiana.. At the time she would have never dreamed it would evolve into to what it is today.. With students all over the world, this small college has earned a reputation of being the leader provider of court reporting education.. The College of Court Reporting (CCR) was founded in 1984 by Kay Moody.. Prior to opening CCR, Kay completed her training at the Chicago College of Commerce in Chicago, Illinois.. Following her training, she was asked to be an instructor at a local court reporting college in Northwest Indiana.. After that college closed its doors, she decided to open her own college.. CCR applied for and was granted full accreditation by the Indiana Commission on Proprietary Education (ICOPE) on January  ...   NCRA on November 1, 1987.. In September of 1989, the college achieved accreditation from the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), a body that accredits many major private colleges throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.. Shortly after becoming accredited, the college added an administrative assistant program.. Over the years CCR has revised and improved its curriculum to meet the high demands of today’s technology.. CCR teaches all of the courses that are necessary for careers in court reporting and administrative assistant.. Students attending CCR also have the opportunity to enroll in additional courses for broadcast captioning or communication access realtime translation (CART) reporting, which aid the deaf and hard-of-hearing.. Today, the College of Court Reporting offers undergraduate associated degree, certificate and diploma programs in two specialized areas of study.. CCR's students include a diverse group of primarily working adults from all walks of life, including students throughout the United States and around the world..

  • Title: Student Testimonials
    Descriptive info: We’d rather dedicate ourselves to fully serving our students than to toot our own horn, but it is gratifying when students recognize our efforts.. Here are examples of what our students say about us.. Bob Stohl, a student who started with CCR in theory.. I must admit that I'm "old school.. " I spent all of my academia in a bricks and mortar type environment.. Even though I had familiarity with the internet, I felt uneasy about participating in a cyberspace classroom.. My apprehensions began to dissipate before classes even started.. As with every student, Nicky made sure that all of my software was correctly installed and all glitches were removed to ensure a smooth acclimation to being an online student.. In addition, to be successful as an online student in a court reporting school, one's time must be properly utilized to maximize an individual's potential in learning this skill.. CCR's time management allows me to segment my daily activities and academics in a written, structured form.. It's an invaluable tool making sure that I get the most out of each day as an online student.. It had been a long time since I set foot in a classroom.. I'm not a kid anymore.. How could I develop the confidence that I need to succeed in this program? As every CCR instructor told me that I can do this, the more I started to believe it.. They spoke from experience.. They assured me that with hard work and determination, I would achieve my goal of graduating from CCR.. Another way I found my confidence increasing was by passing different levels of speed tests.. This could be attributed in part by attending daily dictation classes and in part by spending time with CCR's ev360, an invaluable tool for increasing speed.. Aleece Jones DePuey, transfer student.. "I have nothing but praise for CCR.. I transferred in after being in two brick and mortars.. I used to feel so resentful at my other schools when it came time to pay tuition.. i no longer feel that way, and I know it's because CCR is worth every penny.. I know I can speak for quite a few of us that I was so upset that I didn't know about CCR earlier.. I also think this is why so many transfer students are so vocal about CCR and out praise of the program, staff, and testing methods.. We don't want anyone else to wait as long as we did before jumping onboard and finally feeling like this career path is achievable.. ".. Stacy Coonfield, transfer student.. I’d spent years testing daily.. When tests were returned, they noted pass or fail.. The original copy was unavailable, so I had no idea what my errors had been.. I now choose my times to test and otherwise focus on honing my skills.. By completing the ladder of 1-minute up to 5-minute evaluations, I can experience success all the way to that final evaluation.. It desensitizes me to test anxiety and builds confidence.. My sense of failure decreased, and hope began to build in me again.. My evaluations are returned with full copy, so I understand my weaknesses.. Additionally, my teacher gives me feedback and recommendations, always with words of encouragement.. It even includes punctuation feedback.. How effective this has been in truly teaching me punctuation! I have an English degree, but ingested that information and spit it back out on a test, only to be forgotten.. Through the constant feedback on evaluations and the weekly punctuation quizzes, I’m now truly learning good punctuation.. It is a consistent feed of information that resonates and sticks.. CCR is leading the charge in online training, and their students are reaping the benefits.. The school has returned to me my passion for this endeavor.. Once again it is my hobby, my aim, and my future.. Renee Rodriguez, transfer student.. I have to say that I have never felt more connected and supported by teachers, administration staff, and students as I do at CCR.. I greatly appreciate the amount of effort that is put forth to communicate with the students whether through social networks, discussion boards, I-Office, email, or even an actual telephone call.. I have had my fair share of questions and circumstances that have come up, and I’ve never felt like an inconvenience or a burden.. Questions, regardless of how significant,  ...   I started at CCR, attended live speedbuilding classes, listened to recorded speedbuilding classes, and used ev360, my speed increased considerably.. I passed 19 SAPs the first month, 7 SAPs the second month, and 4 SAPs the third month.. I suddenly found myself writing at 140 words per minute.. Shortly thereafter, I passed another SAP at 160 words per minute.. Not only did I break through that plateau, I exploded through it!.. Along with the improvements in my speed, my motivation re-emerged, and I welcomed it back with open arms.. With the guidance and encouragement of my instructors and my coach, I realized that I would soon be writing at 225 words per minute.. Each week I’m eager and excited to keep pushing and challenging myself.. I feel invigorated and inspired after each accomplishment.. After every attempt at an SAP, I patiently wait for my final grade, listen intently to the instructor’s feedback, take notes, and immediately start practicing again.. Whenever I need guidance on my educational path, a sounding board for career- or goal-related questions, or just a listening ear, I know that I can ask any one of the dedicated staff members, and they will provide me with sound advice, worldly wisdom, and heartfelt encouragement.. Marissa Veith, CCR student.. I just finished the theory classes at CCR and am about to move into speed building.. I came, I dove, I sink and resurface, and I am yet to conquer.. The College of Court Reporting is teaching me that I choose to sink, float, or to swim.. Succeeding and choosing not to add resistance to each stroke (pun intended) is the name of my game right now.. I have more support than I could have imagined.. I am learning that success is about everyday choices, regardless of what parts of me are tempted to resist.. Small victories are won with each stroke!.. Laura Kaspszak, CCR student.. Whether I was struggling with motivation, I needed some feedback on my practice plan, I wanted someone to vent to about the hard time I was having, or I just needed someone to celebrate that last half of a percent on regrading that helped me pass a test, the CCR guardians are always there.. Even when you think they are not paying attention, when you think you are in a place where there is no way that they will see you and you feel invisible, they will find you.. They will come to you in any way you want them to.. Do you text? So do they.. Email? You bet.. Facebook? They'll find you there, too.. And when they find you, it's always with words of encouragement and positivity.. If it wasn't for the time and energy the people at CCR have put into helping me get over the hurdles of a lack of motivation and learning that not perfect is still okay, I would not still be in school.. I would have hit the wall and quit.. Thanks to their constant support, I know that I can make it.. I know that I will be an amazing court reporter.. Donna Watkins, transfer student.. When I enrolled in school, I was scared.. Did I make the right choice? Do I have what it takes? Will I ever graduate? CCR has a very specific set of guidelines that leads students down a path toward graduation.. It isn't easy, by any stretch of the imagination.. On more than one occasion I have stood up from my machine and walked away, thinking it was the end.. I can't do this anymore.. Then I got a note in the mail from my CCR Coach telling me that I am worthy of success.. I would go to class that night and my instructor would tell a story that reminded me I was not alone.. The staff and instructors at CCR have helped me to realize I deserve this, I can do this, and I am worth this.. Kelly Olhausen, transfer student.. I FINALLY received word that I have "officially" passed the RPR, although I will not know my percentages until they mail them out by June 30th! Thank you, CCR!! Kelly Swingler-Olhausen.. 5/5/2012 RPRJ-Reg.. Prof.. Reporter - Jury Default Passed.. 5/5/2012 RPRL-Reg.. Reporter - Literary Default Passed.. 5/5/2012 RPRT-Reg..

  • Title: Frequently Asked Questions
    Descriptive info: Yes.. CCR has been certified by the NCRA since 1987 and was the first online program certified by the.. CCR also holds accreditation with the.. Indiana Commission on Proprietary Education (ICOPE).. since 1985.. CCR was later granted accreditation by the.. Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).. to award Associate Degrees and Diplomas in 1989.. Our online court reporting program was given a grant of accreditation by ACICS May 23, 2001.. Can I transfer courses for credit?.. CCR's transfer policy is in accordance with accreditation policy for transfer credit.. Transfer consideration will be given consideration based on an evaluation of official transcripts, grades and credits earned, and relevance of courses to CCR courses.. Please note that time to complete the program is not dependent on how many credits are transferred or on full- or part-time status.. It is dependent on how quickly one develops the skill and accuracy and completion of all course and graduation requirements.. The College of Court Reporting uses the Moody Method theory.. If your already know a different theory and are considering transferring to CCR, you do not need to learn the Moody Method.. Our academic courses and skill development courses are not specific to any one theory.. The Moody Method is a simple and logical theory, written by educators, that incorporates speedbuilding during the first couple weeks of a students’ first semester.. When The Moody Method was developed, the educators only had the students’ best interests in mind.. They made the rules of writing easy to understand – rules that don’t require hours of analyzing and memorizing!.. By the end of Theory 1, students learn how to write every English word with a strong foundation of the basic theory.. During their second semester, conflict resolution is introduced.. Since students do not have to resolve conflict in Theory 1 and are able to focus only on learning the basic theory; therefore, it is easy for them to make minor changes to groups of words with conflict.. Since CCR has taught The Moody Method, students enter their first semester of speedbuilding writing on an average of 80 words per minute.. This is 20-40 words per minute faster than they were writing with the Phoenix theory CCR taught before developing the Moody Method.. Instructor, Alice Skoro CRI.. "The Moody Method Theory provides students with an incredible tool.. Presented in a systematic fashion, each lesson incorporates review, drills, proper names, briefs, and speedbuilding along with the introduction of new concepts.. After 15 weeks, our students know how to write any English word.. Conflict resolution and beginning speedbuilding can then begin with their second semester.. Students are not burdened by intense analysis of each word.. Instead, they can learn to write with minimal hesitation to facilitate speedbuilding.. Successful students equal successful reporters!".. Instructor, Jami Naughgle CRI.. "The Moody Method Theory was developed by experienced educators who are true pioneers in court reporting education.. The theory concepts are logical, and the textbooks are set up for ease in learning and retaining the material.. The Moody Method Theory also incorporates the latest technology that uses artificial intelligence.. After just the first semester, the students leave theory knowing how to write literary, jury charge, and two-voice testimony.. The students have a strong writing vocabulary and a solid foundation for building speed.. Students meet LIVE classes weekly with an instructor and fellow classmates.. Academic classes typically consist of one weekly LIVE class.. Theory classes consist of one LIVE class each week with an opportunity to attend live or listen to recordings daily.. Speedbuilding classes consist of one LIVE class per week.. Each LIVE class lasts approximately 1 hour in which students are interacting live with an instructor.. Speedbuilding students also have the opportunity to attend up to an additional 18 hours of live or recorded classes weekly.. Each week students need 3-4 hours, 6-7 days per week for machine work, with classes included in the minimum requirement of 18 machine hours per week.. Sample schedule: Wednesday, Theory, from 7:00-8:00 p.. m.. Central time.. Wednesday, keyboarding, from 8:45-9:45 p.. Monday, English, from 8:00-9:00 p.. Students must be available Monday-Thursday after 7 p.. central time.. We charge by the credit hour.. All of our machine shorthand classes are six credit hours, our  ...   we are required to offer each course in the program within 28 months.. A student has an opportunity to complete the program in 28 months if they progress at a regular rate, do not repeat any courses, and are enrolled full time (12 credits) each semester.. The definition of the maximum time frame is the period of time a student is allowed to be enrolled in a program and earn the academic credential for that program.. If the maximum time frame is 44 months, the student must complete all required course work within 44 months.. Can a student attend beyond 44 months of enrollment? Yes, but they cannot receive the program's academic credential such as a diploma, certificate, or degree.. They will receive an official academic record indicating all completed course work.. Now, stating that our minimum and maximum time frames are 28/44 months for our associate degree court reporting program does not mean that a student will complete the program in 28 or 44 months.. It is important to understand that court reporting programs consist of academic course work and skill development course work.. The skill development component is where program completion times vary from student to student.. Every student learns, develops, and progresses with their skill at different rates.. Please speak with our administrative staff regarding the average completion time for our students who complete their respective programs.. A first year dependent student can borrow up to $5,500; and second year dependent student can borrow up to $6,500; and a third year student can borrow up to $7,500.. The aggregate loan limit for a dependent student is $31,000.. A first-year independent student can borrow up to $9,500 for the first two semesters; a second-year independent student may borrow up to $10,500; and a third year independent student can borrow up to $12,500.. The aggregate limit for independent undergraduate students is $57,500.. Does CCR offer job placement?.. CCR assists students with job placement.. We cannot guarantee job placment.. The college prepares graduates for the job search and interview process and is proud of their high placement rate.. We place students locally as well as all over the United States.. Court reporting students complete an internship which frequently leads to employment.. Students will also network with court reporting professionals through our Mentor Program.. What is a mentor?.. A mentor acts as a proctor of dictation tests at various speed building levels.. CCR will provide testing materials to your mentor when you are ready to move into the next speed building level.. Arrangements will be made between you and your mentor for this testing.. It should take no longer than a couple of hours, and it will give you the vital opportunity to connect with a professional in the field of court reporting.. Hopefully, this relationship will be dynamic in that your mentor will be your friend, coach, and support system.. Ultimately, your mentor could assist in your placement into an internship or employment opportunity.. Click the following link for more information about the program:.. Mentor Program Information.. What type of operating system should I be using?.. Students should plan on using a Windows operating system.. Currently, our ev360 technologies do not fully support other operating systems such as Apple's OS or Linux.. What type of students attend CCR?.. Our future court reporters are very self-motivated and self-disciplined.. They have good English and grammar skills and are detail oriented.. Those who attend CCR must be willing and able to devote 18-20 hours per week on their steno machines.. What sets CCR apart from other court reporting schools schools?.. CCR has a rich history, philosophy, and reputation.. CCR has been in teaching court reporting for over 28 years.. It started with the simple philosophy of providing students with the best faculty, resources, curriculum, and educational program possible.. This philosophy was the brainchild of its founder, who first and foremost is an educator, not a business person.. CCR has always been about educating students, not making profits.. This is still today the guiding principle of our approach to those seeking a quality education to enter the careers of the court reporting profession.. We take a family approach to working together where each student's success is every individual on our staff's success..
