Background Check and Drug Screen

  • Required within one month of matriculation; a second background check and drug screen will be required prior to clinical rotations; a third may be required prior to the last semester of training. 
  • $288.00 ($432.00 if a third test is required). The program has made arrangements to have this completed via the company, Castle Branch. Some clinical sites may also require separate and more specific background checks and drug screenings. If required, the student is responsible for any associated fees.
