Students wishing to apply to the Health Information Technology - Medical Coding, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Paramedic, Phlebotomy, Physical Therapist's Assistant, Practical Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, Radiologic Technology, or Surgical Technology professional programs are required to have and pass a criminal background check upon acceptance.

DO NOT complete a background check until instructed to do so by your Program Director.

The Health Science professional programs currently use American Data Bank to conduct the certified background checks. When the background check is received from American Data Bank, students will be requested to review the results with the Program Director. The cost of the background check is $53 and is paid directly to American Data Bank by the student.
