Can I become a juvenile probation officer in ohio with a bachelors degree in criminal justice management?

I started at itt tech in norwood,ohio in December of 2010. Besides all of the crazy stuf and the divorce, I am still not graduated. I plan to go to Union Institute and Univeristy after getting my degree at itt. My question is, will a bachelors degree in criminal justice management allow me to become a juvenile probation officer in ohio? will they overlook my application because it has itt tech on it? and also do you think going to the police academy just as a resume builder will make my chances greater?

    A bachelors degree is all you need to be a juvenile PO.Save your money on the police academy,Here in Texas they won’t take you if your a certified peace officer.

    Consider getting a degree from a public college or university. Most probation officer jobs require a four year degree. Criminal justice, psychology, and sociology are some common majors for probation officers. Some employers require applicants to have an advanced degree in criminal justice, social work, psychology, or a related field. As is true for many law enforcement officer jobs, different employers have different requirements. Previous work related experience can certainly you get hired. I would consider paying to attend a police academy only if it was required for you to be hired. Do whatever you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. Get the highest grade point average that you can in college, don’t do anything illegal, maintain a good reputation, keep a good driving record, don’t get bad credit, improve all of your communication skills as much as possible, and become as physically fit as you can. Best of luck!

    A word to the wise that it’s best to *avoid* those private For-profit schools such as ITT tech. Not only is that particular school a for-profit one, but it’s ONLY nationally accredited which is not even the minimum regional accreditation. On that note, even with those for-profit schools that are regionally accredited such as devry, university of phoenix, strayer and capella, their course course credits usually do NOT transfer to other schools.

    ** This consumer site has a lot of negative posts by former students of those for-profit schools (including from ITT tech), and please heed the students’ warnings: and can search.

    Please instead consider the more affordable (and usually more reputable) community college and/or state/public university as long as the program is accredited within the industry. Just an fyi that “american public university” is a for-profit school.

    For U.S. colleges:
