Proficiency Credit for Criminal Justice

Currently enrolled criminal justice students may petition for the granting of academic proficiency credit, based on previous experiential work in the field in which a degree is being pursued. The student is responsible for assembling and presenting a portfolio of materials to support the request.  Academic proficiency credit may be awarded for in-service training at specialized schools or academies; contingent upon how the training curriculum corresponds to the competency based curriculum objectives for individual criminal justice courses.

Academic proficiency credit awarded will not exceed 15 semester hours. Copies of training certificates and other portfolio materials should be sent to the Criminal Justice Department for evaluation by the Program Director. The Admissions and Records Office will assign course credit. A grade of “P” will be assigned to proficiency credit. Proficiency credit cannot be granted until the student is enrolled (full- or part-time) for classes at Roane State.

Students who complete a Law Enforcement Training Academy will receive the following proficiency course credit.
