If I am only going for an Associates Degree, BUT want to get into US Marshal Service...?

...will the Marshal's Centralized Student Career Experience Program help me on my second (or last) year of college will help me? I'm thinking about going to a community college on my first year, then going to a 4 year college that give you a 2 year degree & has the CSCEP?

...Or is there any Law Enforcement jobs that I can take while in college?

I'm trying to do a combination of BOTH Educational & Experience Requirements.

And is it possible to attent BOTH 2 years of college classes & 2 years of online college courses? Is it possible to combine those two as well into a four degree?

    My only question is why??!! The us marshals are just a glorified prison transport. There is only one division of the marshals that is even remotely interesting and that is the Fugitive Task Force, but you can get on that without be a us marshal.
