NOTES:
1) Police Career Incentive Pay Program (PCIPP), an Amendment to section 18L of chapter 41 of the Massachusetts
   General Laws delegated to the Board of Higher Education (BHE) grants the authority to establish guidelines for program pursued
   for police career incentive pay increases. The BHE has subsequently adopted new standards which DO NOT allow for Academic
   Credit to be granted for
     • Life experience or military, police academy, or other training or;
     • Academic credit for knowledge-based testing (CLEP, DANTES, etc.) to exceed 6 credit hours or;
     • Tech-prep credit.
2) Students being re-admitted into the CRJ Program will enroll in the current program of study.
3) Students selecting this major are advised that employers in Criminal Justice and related fields conduct CORI and SORI checks
   pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 172-178 and regulations promulgated to such statues.
