1.    All VCSU students enrolled in teacher education programs are required to complete a criminal history background check prior to taking Education 250/251.  The application process for student teaching requires all students to authorize the ND Education Standards and Practices Board to conduct a ND Crime Bureau and Federal Bureau of Investigation background check.  (Exemption, Wyoming Program follows Wyoming teacher education requirements.)


2.    All students making application to live in the residence halls at VCSU are required to answer a series of criminal history background questions on the common application for Residence Life. Those applying for the University apartments must answer the same questions on the paper application provided to students.  Any student who answers affirmatively to one of the questions is required to complete the Required Supplemental Information Questionnaire. Completed questionnaires are submitted to the Vice President for Student Affairs (VPSA) for review. The VPSA along with the Director for Residence Life will consider the information and make decisions regarding living on campus and conditions of residency.
