In a continuing effort to serve the needs of students in technical programs, Hillsborough Community College will award accelerated, articulated credit toward an Associate in Applied Science degree (A.A.S.) in Criminal Justice Technology (Officer Administration) and toward an Associate in Science degree (A.S.) in Criminal Justice Technology to those individuals who have successfully completed a Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) approved Corrections Officer Recruit Program and are currently holding CJSTC Certification in corrections, OR have completed the training AND have successfully passed the CJSTC State Certification Examination in corrections making them eligible for corrections certification.

This accelerated credit makes it possible for a student completing a Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission approved Corrections Officer Recruit Program and currently holding CJSTC certification in corrections, OR who has completed the training AND has successfully passed the CJSTC State Certification Examination in corrections making them eligible for certification in corrections, to receive 27 hours of college credit toward the Associate of Applied Science degree (A.A.S.) in Criminal Justice Technology (Officer Administration) and 12 hours of college credit toward the Associate in Science degree (A.S.) in Criminal Justice Technology (9 awarded credits plus CJC 1000).

Before awarding these credits to a student, the College will establish that the student has received a Corrections Officer Recruit Program Certificate of Completion, AND has passed the State Certification Examination in corrections OR holds a current valid CJSTC certification in corrections. Whenever a student appears to be eligible for articulated credits under this agreement, the Academic Advisor will be responsible for requesting an F.D.L.E. Automated Training Management System check on the student. This request will be submitted by the Academic Advisor to the Criminal Justice Institute which will be responsible to obtain confirmation of the student’s eligibility for the articulated credit and will forward such documentation to the Academic Advisor.

The student must matriculate 15 hours of coursework at Hillsborough Community College on either a full or part-time basis to have these credits noted on his/her official college transcripts.
