Clinical/Field Placements

Clinical/Field placements are a required part of many of our programs. Also, in most cases in order to participate in these placements students are required to obtain a police clearance through a College designated agency and at the student’s own expense. The College assumes no obligation for ensuring clinical/field placement or program completion for students who are unable to provide a satisfactory police record check. Please refer to this webpage for pertinent information.
