BCI Fingerprinting and Background Check Information
BCI fingerprinting and background check is required for admission into the ACCESS track of Tri-C's nursing program. This step can only be completed through the Complio account created in Step One. Select the following when ordering the Compliance bundle: Cuyahoga Community College> New Student> Health Professions and Nursing - Nursing/ADN
Effective Jan. 12, 2013, the BCI process may begin no sooner than six months prior to entry into a health care or nursing program and no later than the first day of program entry. (Program entry is defined as a student’s first day of program classes.)
Students planning to register for NURS-1260 LPN to RN Transitions II (first course of the ACCESS track) must begin this process within six months of their anticipated start date. Failure to meet all required objectives successfully can delay entry into the nursing program. You cannot start NURS-1260 without a completed background check.
If you have previously created a Complio account, email firstname.lastname@example.org before creating a new account. Please allow 48 business hours for a response.
If you have already created an account in CastleBranch, you must create a new Complio account.
The cost of the background check and fingerprinting is included in the Complio account fee. If a second BCI background check and/or fingerprinting is required, an additional fee will be incurred.
Refer to the table below for timeframes associated with completing all American Data Bank - Complio and LPN to RN Mobility Exam requirements.
All items must be marked as Approved. Those marked as pending or rejected will render your account incomplete.
Note: Results can take 4-6 weeks to be returned and marked as complete. Students should begin the BCI and Background Check process at least six weeks prior to the established deadlines.
