SUNY Delhi Updates Admission Requirements for Criminal Justice Program

SUNY Delhi is pleased to announce updates to the enrollment and availability for its bachelor's program in Criminal Justice. The change will provide more flexible entry into the programs.

The Criminal Justice bachelor's program is now open to new, first-year applicants and transfer students. Applicants were previously required to have a relevant associate degree, such as SUNY Delhi's Criminal Justice Studies degree, or 60 college credits with related coursework.

A bachelor's degree in criminal justice can lead to diverse careers in law enforcement, corrections, criminal investigation, social work, law, or research. The job outlook for occupations within the criminal justice field is expected to grow faster than average over the next decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Students interested in a career in law can take advantage of SUNY Delhi's exclusive 3+3 articulation agreements with Albany Law School and Western New England School of Law, which allow students to earn both a bachelor's and juris doctor law degrees in six years, resulting in significant savings on one year of costs and fees for law school.

According to SUNY Delhi Director of Admissions and Enrollment Management Robert Piurowski '02, the enhancements to the program are a result of listening to current and prospective students and modifying the admission requirements to meet their needs.

"SUNY Delhi is committed to offering programs that are relevant and in demand, not only from a student perspective but for opportunities to pursue rewarding careers," Piurowski said.
