How the Academy Works

By enrolling in a degree program of the CUNY Justice Academy, you receive dual admission into one of the six participating CUNY community colleges and John Jay College of Criminal Justice. The first 60 credits are taken at a "partner" community college campus, with the final 60 credits taken at John Jay.

This means that when you successfully complete the first 60 credits and meet your Community College Requirements, you not only receive an associate's degree from the partner campus but are rewarded with the option of guaranteed admission to John Jay. Once at John Jay, you will be on track to complete your bachelor's degree.
