Argosy University, Denver Announces Program Designed to Assist Law Enforcement Officers Seeking Their Degree

(DENVER, CO – November 28, 2012) Argosy University, Denver is pleased to announce the acceptance of Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) for prior learning assessment at the university. Through this assessment program, Colorado peace officers can receive up to 23 college course credits when they choose to attend the bachelor of science in criminal justice or other program at Argosy University.

Prior learning assessment is the process used by the university to evaluate learning acquired outside the classroom for the purpose of assigning academic credit. Common ways that college-level learning is acquired include through law enforcement, corporate, or military training; other work experience; civic activity, and independent study.

“Prior learning assessment helps us to recognize, through college credit, the knowledge, skills and training that peace officers in the state of Colorado bring to their college education,” says campus President Dr. Richard Boorom. “This helps our commitment to supporting the educational needs of our law enforcement community by helping those who qualify to reduce the total cost of, and amount of time it takes for, an officer to complete their education.”
