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. Please note that certain clinical sites require more frequent background checks and/or other clearance requirements. Students are responsible for the cost of all clearance requirements.

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.
