Veterinary Technology

Background checks


Students accepted into the Veterinary Technology Program are required to complete a background check and drug screen at the student's expense. The current price for the background check and drug screen is $88.00.

Accepted students are notified by the program regarding scheduling and compliance requirements. No previous drug screens or background checks are accepted. Failure to comply within the specified time line will result in being dropped from the program.

While information gained from the background checks may not stop a student from being admitted to, and successfully completing the program, the information may prevent a student from being eligible for certification/licensure in the profession. If you have any questions or concerns about your ability to pass a background/drug screen test, pursue your education, or practice the profession, please make arrangements for a confidential appointment with the Program Department Head.
