All applicants admitted to the Faculty of Nursing are required to provide a current Police Information Check (also referred to as a Criminal Record Check) which must include a RCMP Vulnerable Sector Search.
In order to be considered “current”, the Police Information Check must be completed during the three months prior to admission.
- June 1 – August 31 for Fall Admission
- October 1 – December 31 for Winter Admission
- Feb 1 - April 30 for Spring Admission
The Police Information Check must be submitted electronically to the Faculty of Nursing Graduate Office, no later than one week prior to the first day of classes. Without documentation, admission to the Faculty of Nursing will be rescinded.
Students who are concerned about the presence of a criminal record should contact the police department to discuss the process for eliminating or erasing such a record.
Failure to present a clear Police Information Check may result in admission being denied/rescinded. An internal University appeal process is available to applicants who are refused admission for this reason.
Subsequent to admission and at any time during the program, a student may be required to produce a current Police Information Check, the results of which could require their withdrawal from the program, in the sole discretion of the University.
If you are charged or convicted of a criminal offense at any time during your enrollment in the program, you are required to inform the Faculty of Nursing Graduate Program Office immediately.
