Criminal Background Check/Drug Testing

Upon entry into the program, you will be required to pass a criminal background check conducted by a college approved vendor. If you do not pass the criminal background check, program registration will not be possible. If you are arrested during the time you're enrolled in the program, you must notify the Program Chair of the arrest. Your status in the program will be reviewed by the Program Chair and the Dean and a possible outcome of the review may be your inability to continue in the program. You may also be required to submit to a 10-panel drug screen urinalysis (UA) and obtain vaccinations. Additionally, two-year programs require you to repeat the processes at the start of the second year.
