If im a college student do I have to drop out to attend the police academy?
I live in Fresno, California and I attend college at Willow International Community College. I really do want to join the police academy by this June, and I was wandering do I have to drop out of school to attend. At this time Im going to school to get my degree in Business, but if I drop out at this time will I be able to go back and get my degree? I was also wandering does the academy pay you while you're in training?

If you are sponsored you must attend academy full time. Since you have some idea of basic college terms let me explain that your basic California POST academy is about 36 semester hours of academic classes along with non academic classes squeezed into 12 to 15 weeks... More

finish the semester then join. dont drop out of college mid semester- waste of $$$. and you act as if youre guaranteed a spot in the academy?

I'm pretty sure police academics are generally in universities, the police have to take the same liberal studies everyone else needs to know to graduate. I know there is a police academy on my campus I attended.
