    Additional Admission Requirements:
      Accepted applicants are required to provide evidence of a Criminal Record Check for access to police agencies for tours and prior to entering the work experience component of the program. At the discretion of the community agency, you may be declined access to a clinical or work placement based on the contents of the Criminal Record Check. The cost of the Criminal Record Check is your responsibility. Program applicants should be aware that, for the purpose of the Criminal Record Check, they must request this from the police service in their home community, whether it is from a municipal/city police service or from the RCMP detachment that services their home area. If you have a criminal record for which a record suspension (pardon) has not been granted, or a matter that is currently before the courts, you may be unable to complete the program.

      Accepted applicants will also be asked to complete a security clearance form prior to the start of the program. At the discretion of the police agency, you may be denied access to a tour or work placement based on the results of the completed security clearance check. Students who do not have an acceptable security clearance may be unable to complete the following courses: CORR 175 (Introduction to Corrections), CORR 240 (Institutional Corrections), CORR 242 (Elements of Security), CORR 243 (Major Incidents), WORK 124 (Corrections Work Experience).
