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.
Contact your program if:
- if you have a misdemeanor
- if you are convicted prior to admission
Be aware of the potential impact for 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).
Indicate whether you have ever been disciplined or placed on academic probation while attending an academic institution. If yes, enter an explanation in the spaces provided.
