The cost of a criminal justice degree varies among institutions. You can expect to pay per credit for a two-year, four-year or postgraduate degree. If you’ve already started your career, you may be able to get help with tuition. Some companies offer tuition assistance help of up to $5,250.
An undergraduate degree will take two to four years to complete, although it can take longer for individuals juggling full-time employment and other obligations. Some jobs, including many law enforcement positions, require additional licensing or industry certification. These may require further training, exams, continuing education or fees.
