Criminal History Notice

Many disciplines, professions, and jobs require disclosure of an individual's criminal history, and a variety of states require background checks to apply to, or be eligible for, certain certificates, registrations, and licenses. Existence of a criminal history may also subject an individual to denial of an initial application for a certificate, registration, or license and/or result in the revocation or suspension of an existing certificate, registration, or license. Requirements can vary by state, occupation, and/or licensing authority.

If a student has been arrested or convicted of a crime it may be more challenging or impossible to obtain employment in certain fields upon graduation. Students are strongly encouraged to consult state requirements and prohibitions to determine whether an arrest, crime or criminal history may affect their eligibility to continue within their program and/or subsequent licensure. Previous arrests or a criminal record may prevent students from being placed at training sites, stop an applicant from obtaining requisite licenses, registration, certifications or gain employment in the field, and/or compromise their ability to complete all academic/program requirements.

Students with previous arrests or a criminal record are individually responsible for checking all licensing and certification requirements in any state where the student is interested in working. Students are also responsible for understanding all residency training requirements to determine whether their criminal history will be a barrier to participation.
