Undergraduate Teacher Certification Program
Every student is required to fill out a criminal background check at the time of course registration.
Please visit http://coehd.utsa.edu/Students/FESP/BG_Checks/BG_Intro.htm to get the form and for more information about criminal background checks.
If you have ever been arrested, it is very likely that the arrest(s) will appear when your background check is run. To learn more about how arrest(s) on your record can impact your ability to become a certified teacher, please visit http://coehd.utsa.edu/Students/FESP/BG_Checks/Impact.htmCriminal History Background Check
COEHD courses that involve field experience require that a criminal history check be conducted before students are allowed to participate in or obtain class credit for field-based assignments.
