Program Details

Ocean County College offers an online Criminal Justice Certificate of Proficiency which represents recognition of the professional who does not plan to enter a degree program.  Likewise, it may be considered an important milestone for the in-service student working towards a degree.  Required courses include courses such as The Criminal Justice System, Police Organization and Administration, Introduction to Law Enforcement, Introduction to Corrections, Criminology, Constitutional Law and Rules of Evidence, and more.

Ocean County College offers a variety of engaging and professionally insightful online courses that can be taken as part of a complete degree program, or on an individual class-by-class basis.  These comprehensive educational programs are designed for students of any age.  Daily schedules make regular campus visits difficult for many busy individuals.  Ocean County College strives to provide students with the easily accessible e-learning environment.  This innovative platform allows the student to take charge of their schedule and participation through an integration of communication services in an easy-to-use software system.  The online courses follow the same academic calendar as the on-campus classes.  

Online programs provide advising in areas such as course selection as well as transfer and career options.  The e-learning software is called the Pearson Learning Studio. Students work closely with an admissions specialist and/or an academic advisor to prepare a schedule that works well.  After individuals have been accepted they receive an acceptance package that informs how to login to Ocean Cruiser.  Ocean Cruiser allows access to WEBADVISOR so that searching for courses and registering is easy.  It is also recommended that upon successful registration, a Student Orientation Tutorial be viewed so that all questions and expectations for online courses are made clear.
