The Associate of Applied Science degrees in Crime Scene Investigation and Law Enforcement
Administration are offered through a partnership agreement between Arkansas State University
and the Criminal Justice Institute of the University of Arkansas. Students must be currently
employed by a law enforcement agency to participate in either of these degree programs
and be fully admitted to both Arkansas State University—Jonesboro and the Criminal Justice
Institute using the admissions process for each institution. The general education component of
the program will be provided by ASU—Jonesboro and all students must comply with the state
guidelines concerning freshman assessment and course placement in English, Mathematics,
and Reading. Courses offered and completed through the Criminal Justice Institute will apply
only toward the associate of applied sciences degree and will not be accepted by Arkansas
State University as satisfying requirements for any other associate or baccalaureate degree.
It is the responsibility of the student to request credit for the Criminal Justice Institute courses
and submit the proper documentation prior to or during the student's first enrollment at ASU.
Partnership agreement tuition discounts for these programs may be applied at Marked Tree
and Paragould locations only.
