Background check requirement
In an effort to foster the safety and well-being of the entire campus community, as
well as to ensure that students accepted to PCOM will be permitted to perform clerkships/internships
required to successfully complete their degree requirements, PCOM requires all first
year students to complete a criminal background check prior to matriculation. All
students must have their criminal background checks processed through a PCOM vendor
of choice. The Admissions Office will send notification of the process after confirmation
of enrollment and must have this information on file prior to orientation; students
will not be allowed to start classes without this information.
The Admissions Committee reserves the right to accept or reject applications to the
chosen program based on merit. Following completion of the admissions process, applicants
will be notified of the Admissions Committee's decision in writing, including any
conditions that must be satisfied prior to or following enrollment. Once admitted,
candidates who wish to enroll are asked to review and acknowledge PCOM's Technical Standards for Admission (PDF) and Matriculation along with a $150 non-refundable deposit. The acceptance packet
will contain all materials required for enrollment.
