Traditional Learning vs. Online Learning

Does the Division of Criminal Justice offer online classes?

The Division offers some fully online courses and some hybrid courses where students meet in the classroom for some sessions and meet online in others.  There are also some courses that we accept from other CSU campuses, which can be taken via CourseMatch.  

However, potential students should note that the vast majority of classes are offered during the day in the traditional classroom setting, and not online.

I want a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice, but I need an online program.  What can I do?

If an online degree program will better fit your needs, consider the online Criminal Justice program offered by the College of Continuing Education (CCE).  

This program is designed and overseen by the Division of Criminal Justice, with the needs of working professionals foremost.  This degree is identical to the degree offered in the traditional classroom setting, with the same accreditation.

I have more questions about the CCE Criminal Justice program.

There is an FAQ about the CCE program, which includes answers to questions about cost, financial aid, and comparisons between the CCE program and the traditional program.

That sounds great!  How do I get started?

An overview of the admission requirements and application process can be found on the CCE Criminal Justice website.
