Policy on Reporting Arrests

Per HSCEP OP 10.20 students must report to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs within 5 business days following the charge of a crime (see definition below).  “Students, trainees, and residents shall timely self-disclose relevant criminal history record information no later than five (5) business days following the charge of a crime. “Criminal history record information" (CHRI) means information collected about students, trainees or residents by a criminal justice agency that consists of identifiable descriptions and notations of arrests, detentions, indictments, information, and other formal criminal charges, and their dispositions. If self-disclosure reveals CHRI, the individual must then undergo a contemporaneous criminal background check, which may include fingerprinting. The report will be made available to the appropriate Dean or his/her designee. Failure of students, trainees or residents to disclose information which is subsequently found on a background check may result in dismissal or withdrawal of acceptance from the university.”
