Student Criminal Background Checks

​Several Michigan Public Acts, as well as federal laws require that a criminal background check occur of any individual who regularly provides services to populations that are generally deemed “vulnerable” or “special,” including but not limited to children, the elderly and the sick in clinical and/or educational settings. Many CMU programs require students to participate in the care of clients, patients, and children in various clinical or educational settings. CMU students must comply with this legislation. 

All students assigned to the sites for clinical and/or educational experiences listed on the Criminal Background Check Sites are required to complete, and pass, a criminal background check prior to beginning their first field experience and thereafter as required by the program. This list of sites is a dynamic list so check it regularly to determine if a criminal background check is required.
