All students taking
CGSC379 and/or CGSC380 must complete clearances by the first day of the
semester in which they are enrolled in the above-referenced courses.

Criminal background clearance
students taking a course requiring field observations must have
a valid criminal background clearance (CBC) on file in the Department of

for the Fall semester and by December for the Spring semester). Please
note that it can take up to six weeks to for the Department of
Linguistics and Cognitive Science to receive the results of your CBC

background clearance for an employer will not clear you. Most places of
employment, even those that work with children and youth (e.g., the
Early Learning Center), do not require the level of clearance necessary
for our purposes.

through August 2020) Use
the table below as an example to determine if your CBC is valid.
You should keep a copy of your CBC, giving you a record of the date of
your last check.
