Foundations of Health students enrolled in HTH 209 , or applying for Selective Programs, are required to complete a CORI/SORI background check prior to registering for classes or applying to programs, pursuant to the Criminal Record Information Act, Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Section 172-178, and Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 18a, Section 1, et seq., and regulations promulgated pursuant to such statues. A positive finding may prevent students from successfully completing the HTH 209 course, applying for Selective Programs, or graduating with a Foundations of Health degree due to clinical site requirements. The College policy can be found in the Student Handbook.
There is a SEPARATE CORI/SORI application you must complete online if you have lived outside the state of Massachusetts in the past 10 years; failure to disclose all relvant information may result in an inability to complete the HTH 209 course. Out of state CORI/SORI fees vary. If you have had legal issues in the past or have any legal affairs pending, you must contact Amy Brandt, Dean of Health Sciences, to set up a meeting.
Depending on course selection, 80% of this program can be completed online. Go to Online Learning for more information.
