Background Check and Drug Screen

Students accepted into the Coordinated Program in Dietetics must successfully pass a comprehensive background check and 10-panel drug screen. Individual Supervised Practice Experience sites and preceptors are not under the authority of Eastern Michigan University and may have standards that do not permit students to complete Practice Experiences at a site if a student has a criminal conviction on his or her record. Depending on the nature of the conviction, it may be difficult for such students to complete all required Supervised Practice Experiences. This also may apply to any substance that tests positive in the drug screening. Therefore, students with relevant criminal or drug (including prescription) history are strongly encouraged to contact a Dietetics Co-Program Director or Dietetics Advisor early in their application process.
