Some courses may require students to attend campus to take exams or give presentations. 

The program is designed to train students to become a law enforcement officer. The curriculum will also provide students with knowledge, skills, and course material that is required for the preparation and entry to the Police Academy Program. Students should consult an academic advisor before enrolling into classes because not all courses may transfer. 

Students will need to complete a minimum of 62 credits in order to graduate from the program. Within those 62 credits, students will need to complete 31 Requirement credits and 31-51.5 Limited Choice credits. Within the Limited Choice section, there will be two “Choices” to complete. The two Choices are Choice 1: General Education Core Area and Choice 2: Law Enforcement.
