A.A.S. CRIMINAL JUSTICE TECHNOLOGY
     


The State of Florida has abolished most A.A.S. Degrees as of Fall 2013.   Students enrolled in the A.A.S. Degree Program prior to Fall 2013 have two years to complete the program and graduate.   New students will not be permitted to enroll in an A.A.S. Degree Program.  The following information is provided for the benefit of those students already enrolled in this program.

 

A.A.S. Criminal Justice Technology Degree is specifically designed for graduates of a Florida police or corrections academy who receive college credits for their academy training toward this degree. The A.A.S. degree will not transfer into upper division programs in Florida universities and colleges and is generally a terminal degree, but students wishing to transfer may be able to take additional courses afterwards to achieve an A.S. degree which will transfer.

To be awarded these articulated credits, the student must first matriculate 15 hours of course work at H.C.C. on either a full or part-time basis.
