Felony and Misdemeanor Convictions
Indicate whether you've ever been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony. Failure to disclose and provide accurate information about prior convictions may have serious consequences, such as annulment of acceptance offers, program dismissal, or other sanctions.
Be aware of the potential impact on program acceptance. Contact the programs you wish to apply to for advice if you have a felony conviction or a criminal record. If you are uncertain of the status of a charge versus a conviction on your record, or if you are uncertain as to whether your offense was an infraction, misdemeanor, or a felony, contact the city, county, or state jurisdiction where the incident occurred.
If you are convicted of a misdemeanor or felony prior to admission and/or matriculation, it is your responsibility to immediately inform your program(s).
Note that you should only provide information regarding crimes for which you were convicted, or to which you entered a plea of guilty or no contest. You should not include information regarding any of the following:
- Any instance in which you were arrested but which did not result in a conviction
- Any instance in which you were convicted of a crime but the conviction was overturned on appeal
- Any instance in which you were convicted of a crime but received a pardon
- Any instance in which you were tried as a juvenile or in which your conviction was entered via a court process specific to juvenile defendants
- Any instance in which you were convicted of a crime but the conviction has since been expunged or sealed by a court under applicable law
Additionally, the laws of some states may relieve individuals of the obligation to provide information regarding certain convictions (such as convictions for specific categories of offenses or convictions that occurred more than a certain number of years in the past). Applicants should consider such laws prior to responding to the questions on this application regarding past criminal convictions.
