OVERVIEW

The University of San Diego has partnered with leading regional and national law enforcement training programs to offer a pathway for their students to earn regionally-accredited graduate level extension credit for their work. This process is called “credit validation,” and generally involves providing USD copies of your completed work for evaluation and grading by a University faculty member.

Most credit validation options are available only to law enforcement professionals who are enrolling in the online Master of Science in Law Enforcement & Public Safety Leadership (MS-LEPSL) program. The credit validation process allows you to earn transfer credit toward the completion of your MS-LEPSL degree.

FBI LEEDA Trilogy

The University of San Diego has partnered with FBI-LEEDA to give Trilogy graduates the opportunity to have their coursework evaluated, given an academic grade, and validated for 6 graduate-level extension units that can be applied to the completion of the MS-LEPSL degree.

California Command College

The University of San Diego has partnered with the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) to give graduates of POST’s Command College the opportunity to have their coursework evaluated, given an academic grade, and validated for 12 graduate-level extension units. MS-LEPSL enrollment is not required.

San Diego County Regional Leadership Institute

The University of San Diego has partnered with the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office to give San Diego County Regional Leadership Institute graduates the opportunity to have their coursework evaluated, given an academic grade, and validated for 6 graduate-level extension units that can be applied to the completion of the MS-LEPSL degree.

Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute

The University of San Diego has partnered with the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) to give graduates of the Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute (SLI) the opportunity to have their coursework evaluated, given an academic grade, and validated for 6 graduate-level extension units that can be applied to the completion of the MS-LEPSL degree.
