LAW ENFORCEMENT CERTIFIED OFFICERS

COLLEGE CREDITS TOWARD AN A.S. DEGREE


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 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 Law Enforcement Officer Recruit Program and are currently holding CJSTC Certification in law enforcement, OR have completed the training AND have successfully passed the CJSTC State Certification Examination in law enforcement making them eligible for law enforcement certification.

This accelerated credit makes it possible for a student completing a Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission approved Law Enforcement Officer Recruit Program and currently holding CJSTC certification in law enforcement, OR who has completed the training AND has successfully passed the CJSTC State Certification Examination in law enforcement making them eligible for certification in law enforcement, to receive 15 hours of college credit toward the Associate in Science degree (A.S.) in Criminal Justice Technology (12 awarded credits plus CJE 1000).

Before awarding these credits to a student, the College will establish that the student has received a Law Enforcement Officer Recruit Program Certificate of Completion, AND has passed the State Certification Examination in law enforcement OR holds a current valid CJSTC certification in law enforcement. 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.
