Why EvCC?

Everett Community College has been a leader in criminal justice education for more than 30 years. At EvCC, you'll learn from skilled instructors who have extensive experience working in law enforcement. Practical, hands-on experience prepares you to work in the field.

An EvCC degree is valuable because many law enforcement agencies require:

  • 90 credits toward a criminal justice or related degree, or
  • Two-year degree in a criminal justice program, or
  • Two-year degree in a related field of study

Major federal agencies require a bachelor's degree.

A college degree also increases the opportunity for promotion and increased earnings over a career.
