Please note: Arrests, charges or convictions of criminal offenses may be cause to deny or limit licensure or employment opportunities in specific careers and occupations (including massage therapy) and may limit a student's ability to obtain federal, state and other financial aid.
Students are encouraged to investigate these possibilities before applying to the Massage Therapy program.
