academic advisor can provide guidance, you are ultimately responsible for
selecting courses that meet a programís graduation requirements.
The clinical agencies that host the WITC HIT students for practicum
courses have significantly increased their demands for background check
scrutiny over the past several years. Background checks will not
be completed until 90 days prior to start of third semester. In the meantime, we want to
ensure students understand, prior to the start of the program, that
if there are
no clinical agencies that will accept the student based on the
background check history, the student must be excused from the HIT
program, regardless of the studentís academic standing.
This is explained in further detail in the
background check disclosure.
All HIT students are required to complete a
Wisconsin Caregiver Background Check
National Criminal Background Check,
which must be completed through
Verified Credentials, Inc. In additional to that, if you are a student who will complete
in Minnesota, you will also be required to complete a
Minnesota Caregiver Background Check.
Prior to 3rd semester, your Program Instructor/Advisor will inform
if a Minnesota background check is needed.
