From submitting your application to admission to registration, WITC is available to help guide you through the admissions process. To help you successfully complete this program, WITC has developed a set of program requirements and functional ability criteria. For students with a disability, reasonable accommodations are available to help you be successful in the program of your choice.
The first step to get admitted is to fill out a WITC application, and WITC will guide you from there. If you're not quite ready to become a student, visit a campus to get the full WITC experience. A campus tour will give you the opportunity to meet staff, instructors and students, tour the campus and get a real feel for the campus culture.

Pharmacy Technician Orientation-Fall 2018
2018-19 PhT Curriculum Checklist for New Richmond and Superior Curriculum Checklists are to be used as a guide. Although your academic advisor can provide guidance, you are ultimately responsible for selecting courses that meet a program's graduation requirements.
- Background Checks
The clinical agencies that host the WITC PhT students have significantly increased their demands for background check scrutiny over the past several years. Background checks will be completed on all PhT students prior to the first clinical placement. In the meantime, WITC wants 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 PhT program, regardless of the student's academic standing. This is explained in further detail in the Background Check Disclosure form listed above, under Admission Requirements.
All PhT students are required to complete a Wisconsin Caregiver Background Check and a National Criminal Background Check, which must be completed through CastleBranch. (New Richmond, Superior) In addition to that, if you are a student who will complete a PhT rotation in Minnesota, you will also be required to complete a Minnesota Caregiver Background Check (see below). Prior to a MN clinical rotation, your program instructor/advisor will inform you if a Minnesota background check is needed.
- MN Department of Human Services (DHS) Background Studies
- The MN Dept. of Health Services NETStudy 2.0 background study requires all persons who provide services to children and vulnerable adults to be fingerprinted and photographed.
- Students will be required to provide WITC a copy of an Acceptable Form of ID for DHS Background studies, the completed MN DHS Data Worksheet and $20.
- WITC staff will verify the information provided, and enter it into the MN DHS website, which will generate the Background Study Fingerprint & Photo Authorization document that is sent to the student. Students MUST present the authorization document and same form of ID to be fingerprinted and photographed. Students will be required to pay the $9.10 fee at the fingerprint and photo location.
- Within 14 calendar days of receiving the Background Study Fingerprint and Photo Authorization document, students must be fingerprinted and photographed. If not completed within 14 calendar days, the above process and fee payment will need to be repeated.
- Background Study Notice of Privacy Practices
- Your instructor will indicate a due date and to whom the paperwork should be sent. After background checks are completed, students are expected to self report any changes.
