Criminal Justice (Police and Corrections)
Dear Criminal Justice Student:
First of all, I would like to welcome you to the Criminal Justice Curriculum at Westchester Community College.
Getting started in college can be a daunting experience – there are forms to complete, deadlines to meet, books to buy, and offices to visit. This guide has been developed to help you navigate the process of getting started with this process. Many of your questions can be answered by reviewing this brochure.
The Criminal Justice Curriculum at Westchester Community College has a long and proud tradition of preparing students to transition directly into law enforcement and corrections roles, and/or transfer to four-year institutions. Many of our alumni have gone on to the best colleges and universities in the world. You are about to join these illustrious alumni as you begin your journey at Westchester Community College.
It is very important that you make connections to faculty, staff and administrators at the College as soon as possible. We are here to help you, but we need your help; be proactive by reaching out to me or any other faculty member in the Criminal Justice Curriculum. You will find that our impressive faculty members are helpful and dedicated to your success.
On behalf of my colleagues, I welcome you and wish you luck as you make your way through your studies at WCC. Do not hesitate to contact me or any of your Criminal Justice professors if you have questions.
