Felony and Other Criminal History Policy

Students in all CHD specialty tracks are preparing to work with vulnerable populations. Applicants are required to disclose any current or past criminal charges or convictions, or pending charges that might result in a conviction, when applying for admission to the CHD program. Failure to report a criminal history may result in denial and/or dismissal from the CHD program. It is the prerogative of the CHD faculty and administration to request additional information about an applicant's criminal history, and based on the information provided, to deny admission (and/or for CHD students, to dismiss them). Please note that students in license-eligible programs must undergo criminal background checks prior to internship and licensure.

Individuals with a criminal history who are applying for a license-eligible track in Counseling and Human Development should contact either the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker, and Marriage and Family Therapist Board regarding eligibility for clinical mental health counselor licensure eligibility, or the Ohio Department of Education, regarding school counselor licensure eligibility in Ohio.
