Criminal Background Check
A current criminal background check must be on file before starting internships.
Note: A record of specified criminal offenses may bar or restrict an individual from:
- course work involving a clinical/practicum/internship experience
- licensure and future employment in this occupation
Students declined for a field placement based on criminal background may not be able to finish the Field 1 and Field 2 courses and hence would not be able to graduate. For any questions about your criminal background, contact a program faculty as soon as possible to have the background evaluated.
Field Experience/Internship Sites
Locally located internship sites cannot be guaranteed. Students may have to move or drive a distance in order to complete internship courses. Scheduled internship attendance days and times for which students must be available vary by agency. Program faculty select, assign, and maintain college contracts with internship sites.
