Credit for Law Enforcement Training

Sworn full-time police officers who have graduated from any of the five law enforcement academies in Indiana are eligible for 12 undergraduate credit hours from SPEA IUPUI. Students can apply these credits towards any of SPEA's undergraduate degree programs. The course credit is for Criminal Law SPEA-J 301, Criminal Investigations SPEA-J 320 and six hours of Internship in Criminal Justice SPEA-J 380.

To be awarded credits for law enforcement training, you must be admitted to IUPUI and you must have completed at least 12 IUPUI credits with a 2.0 GPA prior to being awarded the law enforcement training credits. Law enforcement training credits will not be awarded until SPEA verifies that you have successfully completed 12 credits of coursework at IUPUI.

Correctional Training Institute

SPEA students who have completed the Correctional Training Institute through the Department of Corrections have the opportunity to earn 6 credits toward their degree. Credit is earned through Indiana State University (ISU). Applications are sent to ISU during the training sessions. The admission and registration process can take up to 6 months to process. Once processed, IUPUI students will need to request an official ISU transcript to be sent to IUPUI for transfer credit evaluation. At the Correctional Training Institute, state employees are given the opportunity to take ISU Criminology 210 and Criminology 298 for a total of 6 credits. CRIM 210 (Introduction to Corrections) will transfer to IUPUI as SPEA-J 331 (Corrections). CRIM 298 (Practicum in Criminal Justice) will transfer to IUPUI as SPEA UN 200 and will count as an elective.
