At Ambrose, we understand that making the decision to further your education through graduate studies is an investment personally, professionally and financially. All of us in the MCJ Program are ready to help you through the admissions process.
Students with an accredited baccalaureate degree with a major in criminal justice or a related field – or with permission from the MCJ program director – may apply for admission to the program.
1. Complete the SAU application, including a professional goals statement and two letters of recommendation.
2. Request from your undergraduate institution that a complete and official transcript be sent directly to the Graduate Admissions Office. An official copy is one sent from the institution directly to St. Ambrose University and should include any graduate course work.
St. Ambrose University will accept a maximum of six graduate credits from an accredited college or university if
- the credits were earned within the last five years,
- the final grade was at least a B,
- and the course is determined relevant to the MCJ program.
We're all about YOU
A professor is an educator, but at SAU, professors are so much more. They're mentors, cheerleaders, and counselors during all the challenges and triumphs in your collegiate journey. Alongside them are a host of support personnel for tutoring, test prep, course advising, and much more.
We Support Our Veterans
