Background Check Requirements

As a student in health sciences, you will be required to submit to a background check before being assigned to a clinical facility. The clinical facility will review your background and either accept or reject you for clinical placement.

If you receive an adverse action notice from the PreCheck agency, you have the right to contact the Director of Human Resources at the clinical facility where you are being placed. You may explain the adverse action to the clinical facility and request to be accepted for placement at the facility.

If the facility rejects you for placement after review and discussion with you, the clinical education coordinator for your program will attempt to place you at another clinical facility. This second clinical facility will be notified that you were rejected and placement will be attempted.

If you cannot be placed at a clinical facility and failure to have clinical rotations will prevent you from completing your program, you will be advised to withdraw from the program.
