All students entering into schools, health care and human service agencies for clinical, field placements and/or internships are required to obtain criminal background checks and drug screening. (See attached policy). You will need to do this prior to beginning your class and entering these agencies. You are responsible for payment of these tests. All students must sign the Acknowledgement and Agreement form.
The University of North Carolina at Charlotte and other UNC universities have contracted with Certiphi Screening, Inc. to conduct these criminal background checks. No other investigation agency will be accepted. Once you obtain your criminal background check results from Certiphi, you are responsible for keeping these results to prove your compliance with agency's policy. The College of Health and Human Services will not keep any records of your completion of these tests. You also are responsible for paying Certiphi.
