CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice received praise for curriculum saying "...the courses that are offered are very practical in the sense that they don't just focus on theories. They focus instead on pertinent issues facing the criminal justice system today and how they can be explained and/or addressed," and the administration's commitment to improvement, "...while mistakes can, and have been made, if you are able to point out an error made on the administration's behalf than they are willing to work with you to correct it."

Our goal in presenting this school data is to create a standardized and trustworthy method to assess institutions based on reliable statistics. In order for a school to be eligible to be featured on a Top Programs List, at least five students from that particular major must have submitted feedback on their institution.
Together with our internal recommend rate data, which is calculated based on tens of thousands of student reviews submitted to our site, the data used in the school listings were gathered in 2015-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). This site is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. NCES data is updated annually. However, in many cases the most recently available data will not be for the current academic year. Additionally, tuition rates may vary by program, so prospective students should contact a representative from your institution of choice for more details.
