If a person been in prison for a drug charge, can that person get a degree in criminal justice?


  1. I don’t see why not, however you will not be able to get any federal financial aid.

  2. I wasn’t aware that the universities cared about a criminal background. It may be difficult to get a law enforcement job with a felony, however.

  3. You can get the degree if a university will let you in. However, as others have suggested, you’re unlikely to get a good job in your field with a felony record.

    Also, you weren’t in prison for a drug "charge," I assume — I assume it was a drug "conviction." If you’re thinking about a criminal-justice career, you might as well use the lingo correctly.

    Best of luck.

  4. Yes, and it would help get you jobs around but not in the law, be forgiven in the land of the free, well you weren’t free to do whatever you did why would you believe the rest of it?

  5. most states that are in high demand and u have a clean record for the last 5 years and have a degree in criminal justice would be very easy to get a job….

  6. You can get the degree and the federal financial aid with a felony. As for getting the job in the field; it depends on the state. Some states will allow you to get a job in the criminal justice field but only if the job applying for is not required to carry a gun, as a felon is not allowed to handle any weapon of any kind. It’s be better to look into the requirements for your state and find out what they say before you waste your time getting a degree you’ll never be able to use.
