Every sophomore, junior, senior and Master’s Program student is required to undergo an annual criminal background check. For the convenience of students, on-campus opportunities for fingerprinting are scheduled on the following dates in the Student Rec Room on the lower level of Marian Hall:

Wednesday, August 20, Noon – 4:00 p.m.

Monday, August 25, Noon – 4:00 p.m.

Wednesday, August 27, Noon – 4:00 p.m.

Tuesday, September 2, Noon – 4:00 p.m.

Thursday, September 4, Noon – 4:00 p.m.

Monday, September 8, Noon – 4:00 p.m.

Each student must present a valid Ohio driver’s license or state-issued ID in order to complete the application form. The $69 discounted fee for this service by National Background Check (NBC) will be added to the student’s MCCN account.

Those students unable to be fingerprinted on campus will be responsible for scheduling individual appointments with NBC and completing this requirement by September 15, 2014. The cost incurred for scheduling individually is not discounted and is due the day of fingerprinting (payable directly to NBC).

Any student who fails to complete the required criminal record check by September 15 will risk being dropped from Fall Semester classes.

Special Note to Pre-Licensure Students

You will be asked at the time of fingerprinting if you will graduate at any time from October 2014 through August 2015. If you will graduate during that time, a second set of results will be sent directly to the Ohio Board of Nursing and kept on file until the board receives your application for the NCLEX-RN exam. The background check is an NCLEX-RN application requirement. This procedure saves you the charge for a second set of results.
