Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy (ALETA) graduates who receive the Technical Certificate in Law Enforcement while in attendance at ALTEA can continue their college education by completing required hours through SAU Tech’s Associate of Professional Studies (A.P.S.) degree. The focus area includes 28 credit hours in law enforcement and 32 hours in General Education (scholarships and internet courses are available). Law enforcement personnel who completed ALETA training between 1990 and 1996 may enroll in a 1-credit hour course called Portfolio Development to receive credit for prior learning for the 28 credit hours and qualify for the scholarship. Students who attended ALETA since 1997 but did not receive the Technical Certificate may present a copy of their ALETA certificate to receive the 28 hours credit through prior learning and qualify for the scholarship.
