Background Checks
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 and a National Criminal Background Check, which must be completed through Verified Credentials, Inc.  In additional to that, if you are a student who will complete clinical in Minnesota, you will also be required to complete a Minnesota Caregiver Background CheckPrior to 3rd semester, your Program Instructor/Advisor will inform if a Minnesota background check is needed.
