Class Costs/Format

At this time, the Law Enforcement Academy is only offering a full-time weekday class. We no longer offer a part-time weekend class.

Classes begin twice per year in January and August. They meet Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with an occasional Saturday for a period of 19 weeks. These classes are held at our Cape Girardeau campus.

The cost for the class depends on whether or not the student is taking the academy for credit bearing or not. The non-credit bearing class is $5500. The credit bearing class is tied directly to the current tuition rate and therefore varies. Tuition for both classes includes uniforms, books, testing materials and ammunition.
