A Police Vulnerable Sector Screening (VSS) is mandatory for student clinical placements. It includes a search of police involvement (CPIC) and a search for any sexual offence convictions for which an individual has received a pardon.
- The University reserves the right to revoke admission offers, registration and/or clinical placement at any time based on the results of the VSS.
- You must be 18 + to apply for a VSS. If you are not 18 years of age by your program deadline, please contact your clinical placement risk management advisor.
It is your responsibility to obtain your VSS prior to your program deadline. Please consult your program clinical requirements and deadlines. The deadline may vary depending on your program and year of study.
A Police Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screen may take up to 12 to 16 weeks to obtain depending on your local police service.
Keep the receipt – it may be submitted as proof of purchase if your police service is experiencing a delay.
