Criminal Background Check

For program applications submitted to the Health Sciences Department (EVC) and Human Services Department (RGC) only, the student will be instructed when to initiate the background check AFTER they have submitted their program application for admissions. For program applications submitted to the Health Professions Institute (HBC), students must initiate the background check process only when instructed to do so. Your acceptance to the program is conditional upon successful completion of the criminal background check. Background Checks will not be accepted if they were completed more than 3 months before the start date of the program/course. The background checks are conducted by CastleBranch, a firm specializing in background checks for healthcare workers.

Drug Screening

Incoming students should initiate a drug screen ONLY upon directions from the department.

Each program may have additional application requirements (i.e. proof of current Healthcare Provider CPR; high school diploma or GED, etc).
