Fraternal Order of Police University

"Education is an investment in knowledge that pays the best interest. One of the most powerful things in life, it allows us to find the meaning behind everything and helps improve lives in a massive way. Education gives us an understanding of the world around us and offers us an opportunity to use that knowledge wisely, irrespective of race, creed and gender. Be it a leader in your Lodge or in your agency, FOPU empowers our members with the tools needed to light a path forward." - National President Patrick Yoes

The National Fraternal Order of Police University (NFOPU) is a consortium of colleges and universities that provides members of the National FOP with multi-varied learning programs. These programs are traditional and non-traditional forums. The formation of NFOPU allows FOP members the ability to take courses which will accommodate the unique requirements of a working law enforcement officer's schedule. These courses can be taken completely on-line which will make it easier for our members to obtain their degrees on their own time. All of the colleges and universities that are participating are regionally accredited institutions.

There is no cost to the NFOP and our members could receive benefits in the form of actual tuition cost reduction or extensive credit for past degree work, POST training and FBI Academy training. Not every school in the program will offer actual decreases in tuition, but students of those schools may well matriculate more quickly through the program because of credits received—resulting in completion of their degree in a timely and less costly manner.

None of the universities or colleges require a campus visit or have a residency requirement nor do they require the GRE/GMAT tests.
