The Corrections Certificate program is designed for both the pre-service student and current correctional employee.

It also provides the necessary foundation courses towards the pursuit of the Associate of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice.

Program Note: Those considering a career in a criminal justice field should be aware of strict admissions criteria employed by sate stands and criminal justice agencies. Factors that may disqualify candidates for employment in the profession include conviction of a crime, history of drug abuse, psychological problems, and various physical conditions. Certain classes in the Eastern Wyoming College criminal justice programs may also be restricted to individuals for the same reasons. Please consult with a department faculty advisor if you have any concerns in this area.
