IMPORTANT INFORMATION
1.
Direct all inquiries regarding the application process to Valerie Bardhi via email at vbardhi@aacc.edu.
2.
All Health Sciences students who are offered admission and/or clinical placement will be required to submit a
complete criminal background check and urine drug screen. All student applicants’ final acceptance in the
program shall be contingent upon satisfactory completion of a criminal background check and of a urine drug
screen.*
All letters of acceptance shall state that the acceptance is conditional and contingent on submission of a criminal
background check and urine drug screenas may be required by the programthat results in satisfactory reports.
If an accepted student tests positive for an illegal or un-prescribed drug, the student shall be denied admission or
terminated from any Health Sciences program.
Separate, additional criminal background checks and urine drug screens may be required by clinical sites prior to
placements. Students with an unsuccessful background check or urine screening who are denied by a clinical
site that is required to meet program competencies shall be dismissed from the program and their registrations
shall be withdrawn from courses related to the program of study. If the student tests positive for an illegal or un-
prescribed drug, the student shall be denied admission or terminated from any Health Sciences program even if
a denied placement was not required to meet program competencies. Successful reports of criminal background
checks and urine drug screens do not assure eligibility for specific clinical site placement, program completion,
and/or eligibility to sit for professional licensure/board examinations.
Students are reminded that licensing boards for certain health care occupations and professions may deny,
suspend, or revoke a license or may deny the individual the opportunity to sit for an examination even if the
individual has completed all program course work if it is determined that an applicant has a criminal history or has
been convicted of, or pleads guilty, or pleads nolo contendere or the like to a felony or other serious crime.
Successful completion of a Health Sciences program of study at Anne Arundel Community College does not
guarantee licensure, the opportunity to sit for a licensure examination, certification or employment in the relevant
health care occupation.
Students may be automatically denied admission or, if enrolled, dismissed from the program if they have not been
truthful or have provided inaccurate information on the application or on any other form or submission. Students
who have questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the Health Sciences Admissions Office at
healthsciencesadmissions@aacc.edu.
* Notwithstanding the statements herein regarding urine drug screens, as of September 2010, only certain programs
will be requiring drug screening. AACC shall inform students which programs presently require them. However,
AACC, at any time, has the right, upon notice, to require any and all students and any and all programs to comply
with drug screening.
