A Police Information Check is required for all community or service learning courses that involve working with vulnerable populations. A note is included for all courses that require a Police Information Check. To be current the check must have been completed within 12 months before the start of the course and presented to the unit offering the course prior to the first day of classes. Failure to present a clear Police Information Check will result in the student being unable to start the course. Students are obliged to inform the unit immediately of any change in status of their criminal record.
Students who are not residents of Calgary must arrange for a Police Information Check through their nearest police service or RCMP detachment in the area where they reside. Online Police Information Checks (ePICs) will not be accepted.
Students who are concerned about the presence of a criminal record should contact the police department to discuss the process for eliminating or erasing such a record.
