Purpose: The Law Enforcement Certificate was developed for those who wish to gain or upgrade skills for an academic award, either to enhance credentials and/or complete a program before continuing further study for an associate degree.

Admission Information: Students whose placement test scores indicate the need to increase their level of proficiency in reading, writing and/or mathematics will be required to take appropriate developmental courses.

Enrolling in developmental courses may increase the length of time necessary for completing the chosen course or program of study, but will enhance the student’s preparation for college-level coursework and increase the chances for successful attainment of academic, occupational and personal goals.

Admission Requirements: In addition to the general requirements for admission to the College, applicants are advised that virtually all law enforcement agencies set physical standards and investigate the moral character of all applicants.

Graduation Requirements: Students must achieve an overall minimum GPA of 2.0 in all applicable courses to receive the Law Enforcement Certificate.

Program Requirements: The Certificate in Law Enforcement include basic courses in writing skills, social sciences and first aid or emergency skills as well as specialized courses in administration of justice. At least fifty percent of the required courses must be MGCC course credits.
