Transfer Credit

Only credit from institutions that are accredited by their regional higher education accrediting body is accepted for transfer into the Criminal Justice program. No academic credit is awarded by the Criminal Justice program for life experience or for military, police academy or other professional training. No credit toward graduation is awarded for pre-collegiate level or remedial work designed to prepare the student for collegiate study.  No criminal justice major credits are to be completed through knowledge-based examinations (e.g., CLEP).  Awarding blanket credit for criminal justice courses in a “block” is not allowed (e.g., “12 hours criminal justice credit”). The institution awards degrees only to those students who have earned at least 50 percent of the credit hours in the criminal justice program through instruction offered at Onondaga Community College.
