    I'm currently (financially) ready to enlist in a MS program. Due to time and other factors, online would be the preferred route. I'm dreading going back to school so can anyone tell me the easiest college/university to get the degree?? I'm working for a department that allows the Quinn Bill like pay incentive. As long as it's the same schools on the list as the Quinn Bill.

    Truth be told, don't care about the reputation, as long as it satisfies to get the PCIPP.

    Umass Lowell has an all-online Masters in CJ program that is an approved program. I will not say it is easy, but it's not too bad. $1740 per class, 11 classes total. If you get their Certificate in Security Studies (which is 4 classes that are part of the CJ program anyway), and average a B+ or better, then you don't have to take the GRE's or do anything else. Any questions let me know.

    Regarding the certificate, you mean get that prior to enrolling into the program?

    Yeah I know UML is one of the good ones, most posts (a few years old) are saying it's fairly tough though. Has anyone been to any schools fairly recently?

    Any other schools you know/have input about?

    Correct, you complete the certificate program and then just enroll in the masters program, with 7 classes to go. It's not that tough, the first 4 are the worst as far as writing papers go (each has one big paper, plus mid-term and final), but after that its really not bad. Curry is supposedly easier, but I don't think they have online. I got my bachelors there, which was no picnic. The days of the easy programs are gone (Anna Maria for example).

    Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL offers an MS in Public Admin with specialty in CJ. The program is not easy however they do offer the entire MS program on-line. Apprx $2000 per class and that's with a law enforcement discount.
