University of Oklahoma College of Professional and Continuing Studies Credit Agreement
FBI-LEEDA is proud to announce its association the University of Oklahoma. The university will provide up to three (3) semester hours credit per trilogy course (Supervisor Leadership Institute, Command Leadership Institute, Executive Leadership Institute), not to exceed a total of nine (9) semester hours, towards the completion of a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice or Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership.
The University of Oklahoma has signed an MOU with FBI-LEEDA to allow this consideration for all those who successfully complete any of the Trilogy leadership courses. Sworn law enforcement personnel will also be considered for additional undergraduate prior learning credit based on professional education, training, and experience. All prior learning credit will be evaluated and awarded in accordance with the established standards of the University and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
At the graduate level, FBI-LEEDA Trilogy recipients are eligible to enroll in an internship course for six graduate level academic credits that can be used toward degree requirements for a Master of Science in Criminal Justice or a Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership. Tuition will be waived for LEEDA-related internships, although processing and university fees will apply.
In addition, the University of Oklahoma has agreed to offer FBI-LEEDA graduates of any of the Trilogy programs, and who are sworn police officers, course fees equal to those offered to active duty military while stationed in the State of Oklahoma.
For graduate credit, students will be required to submit a comprehensive essay. The guidelines will be provided by the OU College of Liberal Studies faculty upon your application. Keeping a leadership log or journal throughout your Trilogy classes will be helpful. The credits awarded for successful Trilogy completion will equate to six elective credit hours.
In order to participate in these programs, please submit proof of completion of the FBI-LEEDA program completion and agency in-service training records. The agreement with OU is the first of a number FBI-LEEDA is pursuing on behalf of FBI-LEEDA Leadership Institute graduates.
