Current H.C.C. students who wish to become Criminal Justice Majors can simply begin by registering for criminal justice classes; however, you should contact Advising at some point soon and switch your degree selection based on the following list:
SEEK THE A.S. DEGREE IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE TECHNOLOGY
This is the degree most Criminal Justice Majors should select. It will allow you to transfer to the University level as a junior.
SEEK THE A.A.S. DEGREE IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE TECHNOLOGY
This degree is only for Criminal Justice Majors who are enrolled or graduated from a police or corrections academy because you may be eligible to be awarded credits toward your degree for the academy. This is a terminal degree and does not transfer to the University; however, students who have completed their A.A.S. Program can re-register for the A.S. Degree.
SEEK THE CRIME SCENE COLLEGE CREDIT CERTIFICATE
This is a Certificate Program for those interested in Crime Scene and already have a degree or do not wish one.
PLEASE NOTE: As the Associates in Science Degree (A.S.) in Criminal Justice Technology is now transferable into upper division programs in Florida Universities allowing graduates to seek a Bachelor’s Degree, an A.A. Degree is no longer required to go forward onto the university; however, Criminal Justice Majors may seek an the A.A. Degree in Justice Administration or in Liberal Arts.
PLEASE NOTE: Persons wishing to register for a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION PROGRAM such as Homeland Security, Fingerprinting, or Private Security only, or persons wishing to register for an individual course only may do so as Non-Degree seeking students.
