Adventist University of Health Sciences requires all new students to complete a background check before registering for the first time. This information is needed for participation in Service Learning projects and in clinical settings. The student is responsible for all costs incurred during this process.
The background check is a two-step process:
- Go to https://aissreports.acxiom.com/consumer/contractor.asp to complete the online portion of the background check.
- Visit www.adu.edu/enrollment/admission/backgroundchecks to download the waiver form. Once the waiver is printed and signed, it can be delivered, mailed, or faxed, to Enrollment Services. The address and fax number are listed on the form.
The background check hold will not be removed until both the online report and waiver are received. The online report is sent directly to ADU. The student does not need to provide a copy unless one is requested.
Only one background check is required per degree for students unless they are not admitted to a professional program within two years of completing the first background check. If it has been more than two years, students will be required to complete a second background check. ADU alumni from one program will be required to complete a new background check if they pursue another degree. Students in the BS Diagnostic Medical Sonography and BS Radiologic Sciences programs are the only ones exempt from this requirement.
