Criminal history background information is required of all Radiologic Technology students. Information obtained will be considered in determining student eligibility to complete clinical coursework. Inability to participate in clinical experiences due to the information obtained from the background check may result in the student’s inability to satisfactorily complete program degree requirements. Any infraction while enrolled in the Radiologic Technology program must be self-reported to the coordinator/director. Questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Program Director at 509-544-8342.
Health Science program students are required to order their background check upon acceptance into a program. Each program has its own package code and this information is provided to accepted students with their letter of acceptance. The CBC Health Sciences Center office has view access to the results of the background check by Certified Background. There is a due date for accepted students to establish their Certified Background search and an Immunization Tracker account. Please note, students need to pay for their background check by debit or credit card.
Clinical facilities reserve the right to accept or decline clinical students; however, acceptance to each clinical facility is required before a student may enter the clinical facility for any clinical participation related to Columbia Basin College. In addition to the criminal background check conducted by Columbia Basin College through Certified Background, each clinical facility reserves the right to conduct its own criminal background check prior to allowing the student to enter for clinical participation.
The background check will include a review of several items, including:
Upon completion of the background check, students will be provided a code from Certified Background that may be used with the last four digits of the student's Social Security number to access the completed criminal background report. Upon the request of the clinical facilities, students may be required to provide the clinical facility access to their completed criminal background report before participation in any clinical activities. Only students approved by the clinical facility are allowed to participate in clinical activities and the clinical response must be documented with the CBC Health Sciences Center office.
The background check results are the property of the student. Students can share access their results with other schools or employers by providing their report password and the last four digits of the student's Social Security number.
