Police Academy

NC State’s Police Academy certificate program allows students to complete a series of coordinated courses in a shorter period of time than an associate degree. Students in associate degree programs may benefit from adding a certificate to their areas of expertise. A minimum of a 2.00 grade-point average must be obtained for all required courses in order to receive a certificate.

Upon successful completion of a certificate program, a Certificate Request form must be completed in the Student Records Office in order to receive a certificate.

Criminal Justice Majors of North Central State College are educated as a whole person in habits of critical thinking, leadership, lifelong learning and are also provided the opportunity to acquire the practical skills needed for competent performance in the changing workplace as well as the opportunity of preparation for advanced education.
