The Faculty of Education does not require criminal record checks or other screening procedures as a condition of admission to programs. A student should, however, be aware that such record checks or other screening procedures are required by school districts/schools that host education students. Such agencies will not accept a student without a clear criminal record check or other screening procedure, which would prevent the student from completing a required component of the program. As a result, such a student may not be eligible for promotion or graduation.
It is the responsibility of the student to have such procedures completed as required and at his/her own expense. The Faculty of Education expects a student to provide evidence of a clear criminal record check before he/she is assigned to a school.
The screening procedures of any given agency may change from time to time and are beyond the control of the University.
