Background Check Information (BCI)
All health career programs at Tri-C are considered selective admission programs. As a result, these programs have a limited number of openings each year and therefore have specific admission requirements that must be met prior to admission. The completion of a criminal background check (BCI) is one of the admission requirements to enter a Health Careers program. The background checks are required in order to (i) ascertain the ability of students to eventually become licensed, registered and/or certified in their health career profession and (ii) the ability of the students to attend mandatory clinical, practicum and/or internship rotations at internal and external facilities in accordance with the requirements of the applicable program of study. Please see General BCI Requirements for important information regarding the BCI requirements and processes.
All students who are applying to the following programs must complete a background check:

Where do I go to get the BCI?
Effective June 14, 2021, all students will be required to attend a mandatory compliance training session as part of the health careers student BCI and health requirement management process.
These sessions will cover how to set up your account and register with the third-party administrator vendor. Once the account is established, students will receive instructions from the vendor on how to proceed with fingerprinting. Students will also be able to enter and upload health requirement information. Students should not attempt to create an account until guided by the compliance staff and after they have attended the training session.
