                                                                             ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE

College of Eastern Utah (CEU) and Utah State University (USU) are working in partnership to offer an Associate of Science in
Criminal Justice to a larger number of students. Awarded by CEU, this degree will be available at USU Regional Campuses and
Distance Education (RCDE) sites across the state. Students will take CEU Criminal Justice (CJ) courses broadcast to USU RCDE
campuses and centers, and students will fulfill CEU general education requirements by taking USU courses which will then be
transferred to CEU. For more information on the CJ Department at CEU, please visit For
more information on CEU or USU RCDE, please visit their websites, respectively: and

Because students will need to enroll in both schools in order to complete the Associate of Science in Criminal Justice, students need
to qualify for admissions at both CEU AND USU. Students taking classes at both institutions simultaneously will be responsible
for paying each institution’s respective tuition for the number of credits they are taking. Students must be aware that they need to
have 24 credits from CEU in order to receive the Associate of Science Degree in Criminal Justice. Students should also be aware that
they must have a grand total of 63 credit hours, (33 credits of general education and 30 elective credits,) in order to receive their
Associate Degree, and they may need to take additional elective credits outside of the required CJ or general education courses to meet
these requirements. Elective courses may be from either institution in any department as long as they are 1000 level courses or above.

Students should be aware that at CEU CJ 1010 fulfills the Social Science requirement in general education, CJ 1300 fulfills the Oral
Communications requirement, and CJ 1350 may fulfill the Earth Science requirement. CJ 1010 and CJ 1300 will count for both the
CJ requirements AND general education, but CJ 1350, if counted as an earth science, DOES NOT count as an elective course in the
CJ department. It is still recommended that students take CJ 1350 for Earth Science so as to acquire the 24 CEU credits required.

* The CIL Exams consist of six tests that assess students’ competency of computer and information technology. In order for the test
to fulfill the CEU Computer Literacy requirement they must be posted on the student’s transcripts. For more information on
the tests, visit

** In order to meet credit requirements students may need to take additional elective courses. Please see an academic advisor for
verification on how many elective may be necessary.

Because the Computer Literacy and Oral Communications areas are competency requirements, all credits applied toward them will be
counted as elective credits.
