Background Check/Drug Screening/Health History

Criminal Background Checks, Drug Screening, Health History

Many of the programs, including those in the Health Sciences, require successful completition of a Criminal Background Check (CBC), Urine Drug Screen (UDS), and/or submission of health and immunization histories prior to course registration and clinical/field placements. Students whose Criminal Background Checks and/or Urine Drug Screening disqualify them from placement will be declared ineligible for continued enrollment and removed from the programs. Even if a student has a clean or acceptable Criminal Background Check and/or Urine Drug Screening, it is the student’s responsibility to notify the Office of Student Affairs or the Program Director if any incident occurs during enrollment that may disqualify him/her from placement eligibility. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action and removal from the program.

All costs related to criminal background checks, urine drug screening and compilation of health and immunization histories are SOLELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STUDENT.
