Additional Requirements:

All Allied Health students have additional requirements. The clinical sites require criminal background checks and a criminal history be conducted before students begin clinical assignments. The clinical agency reserves the right to accept or deny any student for clinical privileges.  Applicants need to be aware that any history of misdemeanor and/or felony or past abuse may make them ineligible to meet clinical and program requirements.
