All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.
In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent and must be cleared by the first day of class. Depending on your program of study, an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance. Nursing students are required to complete both the DCF and FDLE background checks.
Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution.
Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
