This degree is designed for students entering into Criminal Justice careers, particularly for those interested in law enforcement. Although many of the courses in this career program may transfer to four-year institutions, this program is not designed for transfer. This program does not include many courses that four-year institutions require in their general education program.

Entering students are required to complete ORI 107. Transfer students are exempt from this requirement.
