Education Information:

Note: If you plan to add or drop a major or minor in another CWU department, you are responsible for requesting to enroll or withdraw through that department. We can only change LAJ department major/minor information.

Degree Options
The standard degree program is offered at our main Ellensburg campus and our Des Moines and Lynnwood branch campuses. Classes are primarily in person, but may include some online or hybrid courses. The online degree program is reserved for students who do not have access to on-campus, in-person classes. For this reason, Ellensburg residents are not eligible for the online program. Classes are held online, but students at our Des Moines and Lynnwood campuses may choose to register for on campus classes at those centers if seats are available.
The LAJ major is a 60-credit program consisting of eight core classes and seven LAJ electives. Most students can complete this major within two school years. Students may need to take more classes outside of the LAJ curriculum to satisfy CWU's 180 credit graduation requirement. The LAJ minor is a 24-credit program consisting of three core classes and three LAJ electives.

By signing this form, I confirm that I have read and understand the requirements for admittance into the Law and Justice program as outlined in the current Central Washington University catalog.
