Background Check Information (BCI) 

All health career programs at Tri-C are considered selective admission programs. These programs have a limited number of openings each year and have specific admission requirements that must be met prior to admission. The completion of a criminal background check (BCI) is one of the admission requirements to a Health Career program.  The background checks are required in order to (i) ascertain the ability of students to eventually become licensed, registered and/or certified in their health career profession and (ii) the ability of the students to attend mandatory clinical, practicum and/or internship rotations at internal and external facilities in accordance with the requirements of the applicable program of study.  Please see General BCI Requirements for important information regarding the BCI requirements and processes. 

 All students applying to the following programs must complete a background check:

Where do I go to get the BCI?
The BCI registration process is first started online through Verified Credentials, . Once the registration process is complete, the fingerprinting portion is done at an Integrity Verification site (a partner of Verified Credentials).  Integrity Verification has a facility at the following locations:

7155 Pearl Road • Cleveland, OH 44130 • Tel: 440 886-0900 • Fax: 440 886-0907
735 North Court Street • Medina, OH 44256 • Tel: 330 725-3866 • Fax: 330 725-7981

Tel: 216 645-5576 • Fax: 216 245-6521

Currently, this is the only vendor in which student fingerprinting can be obtained from.  In addition to going directly to the Integrity Verification facilities, each semester onsite fingerprinting will be offered at each campus, starting Spring Semester 2014.   Please contact the Contract & Compliancy Coordinator or see below for more details.
