Forensic Science Investigation

Tuition + Fees

The Certificate in Forensic Science Investigation utilizes courses that are 40, 24, 16, and 8 hours in length. The cost per course is the same if the student is completing the full Certificate in Forensic Science Investigation or completing individual courses for CEU credit. The tuition for each course is as follows:

  • 40 hour course -- $400.00
  • 24 hour course -- $250.00
  • 16 hour course -- $200.00
  • 8 hour course -- $100.00

No additional fees will be assessed to these students since all courses will be completed at the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office training facility.
