Background Clearance

National American University offers a number of academic programs that may ultimately lead to certification and/or licensure in any given field. In that regard, governing and/or regulatory agencies or bodies may require the demonstration of a criminal background clearance prior to granting such certification and/or licensure. It is incumbent upon students to verify whether a specific criminal background clearance is required in their field of study prior to beginning course work. Upon request, university personnel will assist students with contacting the proper agencies or authorities in making this determination.
