  • FAQ - Criminal Background Checks

    Will I be subject to a background check?

    Each participating school has its own policy regarding the requirement of a criminal background check. In accordance with the school's policy, some or all of the TMDSAS participating schools may require a criminal background check on accepted applicants as a condition of admission or matriculation. An applicant will be denied admission or barred from matriculation if he/she refuses to consent to a criminal background check. In general, the cost of performing the background check will be the responsibility of the applicant.

    For more information, refer to each school's Criminal Background Check policy.
