Important information for applicants

Students who are applying for entry into a health care profession where practicum and/or field training is required for certification or licensure, need to be advised that they will have to pass a drug screen as well as a criminal history check (CHC) as a condition of their acceptance into a medical, dental or community facility.

It is the full responsibility of the applicant to notify their program department should any contact information change (i.e. phone number, address, email). Failure to comply with this requirement may prevent admission.
