Proof of requirements are submitted through online record tracking system.  See Student Success Advisor for Health Occupations for instructions.

The criminal background check is to be completed within 90 days of the first day of the program.  Do not complete earlier. 

  • Pass 10-panel drug screen**

Although possession and use of marijuana is no longer a crime in the State of Colorado, the possession and use of marijuana remains illegal under federal law.  Consistent with federal law, including the Controlled Substances Act and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, the use and/or possession of marijuana continues to be prohibited for students seeking admission or enrolled in a health program at Morgan Community College. Therefore a student with a drug screen showing positive for use of marijuana is ineligible for admission and/or continuance in the program.

  • Purchase student liability insurance and a clinical badge at the College Store.
