What Is CUNY Justice Academy?
The CUNY Justice Academy (CJA) is a partnership of six CUNY community colleges with John Jay College of Criminal Justice to help you make the transition to a baccalaureate degree. Being part of the CJA puts you on track to complete your bachelor’s degree at John Jay College.
How Does It Work?
By majoring in a participating program at the CUNY community colleges, you are automatically part of the CJA and receive dual admission into corresponding B.A. programs at John Jay College. When you successfully complete the first 60 credits and meet your community college requirements, you not only receive an associate degree from the partner campus, but you are also rewarded with the option of guaranteed admission to John Jay where you will be on track to complete your bachelor’s degree.
