Do I need a background check?

Yes. You must have a background check as soon as you are admitted and before being placed in a public school for field experiences. You will not be allowed to begin professional program courses until you have received clearance.

Admission to the Teacher Education program will be immediately revoked if you have a criminal record that prohibits you from being eligible for a North Dakota teaching license. Additional information will be provided once you have been notified about provisional admission into the Teacher Education program.
