All teacher education students are required to complete a criminal background check prior to early field experiences and again before entering internship semesters.
Students enrolled in the following courses during the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters have their background check expense covered by their course fees. See instructions here.
- EDCI 201
- PSY 323
- SPED 339
- BK 250
Students who are not enrolled in these courses and all graduate students are responsible for the background check expense at the time it is ordered. Initial background checks are $18.50 and background re-checks are $11.50. See instructions here.
Students are responsible for self-disclosure of any charges accumulated after their initial background check. New charges should be reported to the Director of Field Experiences within 72 hours of the incident or risk losing field placement.
