Signing Ceremony for College Credit Initiative Agreement between the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and the College of Coastal Georgia

Feb 22, 2013

Connie L. Patrick, Director of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and Dr. Valerie A. Hepburn, President of the College of Coastal Georgia, signed a historic agreement between the two institutions on February 27, 2013.  This ceremony took place at the Atrium of the Southeast Georgia Conference Center, College of Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, Ga.  This agreement provides college credit hours for three FLETC basic training programs with learning outcomes equivalent to college courses in criminal justice and law enforcement. Up to 12 hours of college credit will be earned and applied towards degree programs at Coastal Georgia or potentially transferred to another college or university. Through the University System of Georgia’s eCore program – the electronic core curriculum available for online study – additional hours of academic credit can be completed for an Associate Degree in Criminal Justice from the College.
