Title

Criminal Background Checks/Drug Screening

During the clinical phase of the program, learners will be required to undergo one or more national criminal background checks, which may include finger printing. Supervised clinical practice experience (SCPE) sites may require additional background checks, fingerprinting, and/or drug screening for learners who are assigned at those institutions. Learners are responsible for all expenses related to meeting additional drug screening, and background documentation required by the SCPE site. A criminal record or failure to pass a drug screen will result in a referral to the Academic and Professional Performance Review Committee and may result in the learner’s dismissal from the program; if this occurs, tuition and fees will not be refunded.

By accepting admission to the program, a learner agrees to submit to national criminal background checks, which may include finger printing, as well as drug screening: and pay any associated expenses.
