2 - May substitute an approved natural science elective including MTH 119 or higher with a grade of "C" or better for CJ 220. Please refer to the MACRAO information in the catalog. Lab science credit in two different areas would be particularly useful for transferring to a 4-year school and is required in the fulfillment of the MACRAO agreement.
3 - This program does not certify you for employment as a police officer as it does not incorporate the Basic Police Training (B.P.T.) Program.
4 - Employment within the Criminal Justice field may be delayed or denied depending on a history of convictions involving felonies, misdemeanors, and/or involving controlled substances.
5 - A grade of "C" (2.0) or higher is required in all core courses.
