Before registration is completed by the Health Science Center staff, you will be asked to submit information for a National Background check with the College-approved vendor. Information from this will determine student eligibility to complete clinical coursework. Inability to complete a clinical rotation due to the information obtained from the background check will deem the student ineligible for the program.
