National Forensic Academy (NFA) Collegiate Program
A few last-minute slots are now available in this year’s National Forensic Academy (NFA) Collegiate Program, which will be held Jun 14 – Aug 1, 2014, at the UT Law Enforcement Innovation Center in Oak Ridge.

Your students will receive 9 hours of academic credit in CJ 435 Forensics and Physical Evidence from the University of Tennessee as “Transient” students for the 2014 Summer term, with course grades entered on official UT transcripts for transfer back to your university. Condensed to a summer time frame and format that accommodates college students’ schedules and other academic programs, the NFA is an exceptional way for them to gain valuable skills over the summer and improve their standing in today’s competitive job market.

The curriculum includes class work, field exercises, and academic research in numerous criminal investigation areas, including crime scene management, shooting incident reconstruction, bloodstain pattern analysis, forensic anthropology and human remains recovery. The cost for this unique 3-week program is $4600 per student, which includes all tuition and fees, housing (fully furnished 2 bedroom/2 bath apartments shared by participants), use of digital cameras, supplies, and personal protective equipment. Food, transportation, and personal expenses are in addition to the $4600. Student payment plans are available.
