Prior to registering for health care courses, students who have been conditionally accepted must complete a criminal background check. Students are responsible for completing the background application process, paying all fees and ensuring that a copy is submitted to the appropriate program director.
Clinical facilities determine what constitutes an unacceptable background check. The student is responsible for working with the background check company to clear up any reporting discrepancies. If there is a criminal history that cannot be cleared up prior to the start of the clinical, the student needs to apply to his/her respective professional board for licensure clearance. Students cannot begin or continue their studies until the background check process is satisfactorily completed.
