Welcome to the MCC Health Sciences Division

The Health Sciences Division offers courses and programs in health care, wellness, and physical education.

Our programs help students prepare for employment in health care professions. Courses may be used toward completion of a certificate or an associate’s degree, and courses may transfer to other colleges and universities.

Criminal Background Investigation (CBI) and Drug Screening - Requirements

Currently a CBI is required for all students applying for any Health Science program except: Physical Education, Phlebotomy, and Histologic Tech*.

Criminal Background Investigations & Drug Screens
Michigan law requires criminal background screening for individuals working in most health care settings and facilities. Students in a Health Science Program are affected by this law. Conviction of a criminal offense (felony or misdemeanor) may make a student ineligible to be assigned to a clinical site, making program completion and graduation unattainable.

The start-up packet provides instruction regarding the process to complete and submit the background investigation. Students will not be admitted to any health science program without a clear CBI.

*In some cases, clinical sites may require students to complete additional background investigation and submit to drug screening procedures prior to or during the clinical experience. All background investigations and drug screenings are at the student’s expense.

Conviction of a criminal offense may also make graduates of health science program ineligible for state or national licensure/certification at program completion. All applicants for a health profession license in Michigan are required to submit fingerprints and undergo a criminal background investigation prior to licensure/certification.

Program coordinators, faculty, and staff cannot give legal advice to any student regarding potential eligibility/ineligibility based on prior convictions or negative findings on the criminal background investigation. The student should consult an attorney for questions specific to his/her individual case.
