Clinical Requirements

Required by Clinical Agencies

Health and background requirements are controlled by clinical agencies. Applicants must be cleared by clinical agencies several weeks prior to attending clinical. Therefore, most of these requirements must be completed prior to registration or program admission. Others must be renewed after program admission. Clinical agencies may require that background and drug screening be repeated at any time after program admission. Clinical facilities may require criminal background checks, drug screenings, credit checks, and/or proof of US citizenship prior to or during participation in the clinical portion of a program. Any expenses associated with these requirements are the responsibility of the student. Pending the outcome, clinical facilities may deny a student the opportunity to complete the clinical portion of a program. A student who is unable to complete the clinical portion of a program will not be able to graduate.
