Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Attending John Jay College of Criminal Justice, right in the heart of New York City, was one of my greatest experience. I love all of my professors; they challenged me and their passion for teaching was obvious. They were always helpful and ready to assist me in office hours. In addition, the student community was very friendly, and there were many student clubs to join. Also, check out the Honors Program. It is great! Especially if you are passionate about social justice, I think John Jay will put you on the right path. I am happy to have received my undergraduate degree there and now I am attending law school. Go John Jay !!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

I attended John Jay College and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree. Although I loved the professors, school location, and curriculum, I do not feel like my expectations after graduating from a well known school were fulfilled. It took me almost a year after graduating to obtain employment and I get paid close to minimum wage which makes me wonder if my degree was worth the time and money spent. I am not satisfied with my current pay compared to the loans I accrued while attending the school. I graduated with honors and consistently made it on the Dean's List but was never offered a scholarship or a grant from the school for my achievements. The school overall is great, but don't expect financial assistance, networking opportunities, or finding a job right after graduation.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

People often discredit CUNY schools but by far attending John Jay was the best decision of my life. Not only is it affordable, but the instructors are extremely knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated to their students. There are so many internships, fellowships and research opportunities that offer hands-on experiences that truly prepare you for the real world. Their student organizations also give you a chance to meet new people and gain lifelong leadership skills. Most importantly, my education has helped me obtain great employment opportunities and further my education! John Jay is a WIN-WIN university!

Degree: Criminal Justice

John Jay is as fun as you make it. Everyday the school has different activities dealing with justice and can really help when it comes to networking, Once you build that relationship, the staff are very nice and helpful and does not mind when dealing with the million and one questions you might have. Many resources to start you career. I love my time at John Jay and cannot wait to go back for my Graduate studies.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

I graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in 2013 and I cannot envision myself graduating from another school. I would recommend John Jay College to any student who are interested in pursuing a degree in criminal justice or forensic psychology. There is a large variety of courses to choose from such as juvenile delinquency to sociology of violence. Some of the professors are very knowledge and try to work with you. The location is very convenient and commercial. Tuition is very affordable around 2k a semester.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

John Jay is a great school, especially if you are interested in the criminal justice field or want to make a change in the system. The professors are great and usually are in the field they are teaching so they can assist you with career options. There is great diversity in the school and the school tries to accommodate everyone.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2009

John Jay is a highly respected school. The programs are very flexible. I was able to take classes from different departments to personalize my program for my goal. I decided to become an addiction counselor midway through my program. I was still able to take drug and alcohol related classes within the psychology department but also ones with the criminal justice department (which happened to be taught by sociology and anthropology professors).

It's a good college, no complaints other than the bureaucratic side which was very annoying to deal with.

Fantastic college for criminal justice and forensic science. Helpful faculty/professors/instructors. Difficult to get into their master's program.
