To be eligible for graduation, students pursuing an Associate of Science degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice, must complete a minimum of 60 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher, satisfy the College’s residency requirements, and complete the General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. Courses used to complete General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.
The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations (FCO 103 will be a required co-requisite with FCO 105 for students who have a high school GPA below 3.20), and Disciplinary Perspectives. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation.
In addition, students majoring in the Criminology and Criminal Justice, A.S., must earn a 2.0 or higher in all CJA courses.
