The College of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida State University (FSU) is pleased to announce the GRE requirement for the online master’s program is waived for applicants with at least five years of professional experience in a relevant Criminology and Criminal Justice field. This decision made by university officials marks the second effort toward making one of its top-ranked programs accessible to students nationwide.

During the fall of 2012, FSU’s College of Criminology and Criminal Justice began offering market rate tuition to all distance learners in its program. Market rate tuition ensures all enrolled distance learning students – even those residing outside the state of Florida – are responsible for the same tuition and fees as in-state residents. As a result, students enjoy a 40 percent savings for tuition and fees.

The Distance Learning Program at FSU Criminology is unique in its approach to online education. No campus visits are required and only faculty members teach the classes. Distance learners receive the same quality education as campus students but enjoy the freedom of tailoring their academic schedule to achieve a manageable work-life balance. In addition, all students benefit from market rate tuition, which allows them to pay the same rate as a Florida resident.

Applications for the online Master’s degree in Criminal Justice Studies are available at the FSU Office of Admissions and will be accepted until July 1, 2014 for fall admission.
