All VCSU students enrolled in teacher education programs are required to complete a criminal history background check prior to student teaching. The application process for student teaching requires all students to authorize the ND Education Standards and Practices Board to conduct a ND Crime Bureau and Federal Bureau of Investigation background check.
All students making application for admission to attend VCSU are required to answer a series of criminal history background questions on the NDUS common Application for Admissions form. Any student who answers affirmatively to one of the questions is required to complete the Required Supplemental Information Questionnaire. Completed questionnaires are submitted to the VCSU Campus Threat Assessment Team for review. The Campus Threat Assessment Team will consider the information and make decisions regarding admission and conditions on enrollment.
