Zachary Law Compliance Policy
To comply with the state and federal regulations, potential and current students and faculty in selected programs within the College of Nursing and Health Professions, will be required to have a criminal records check relating to sexual and violent offenses against children.

In accordance with the state of Indiana’s revisions of Zachary’s law made in January of 2003, the College of Nursing and Health Professions will verify if the student is registered with the registry for convicted sexual and violent offenders against children, and will continue to do so at least annually for as long as the student remains in the program.

Should the student’s name appear in the sex offender registry, the student will be denied admission to or progression in the undergraduate nursing program. If the listing is the result of an error, it will become the student’s responsibility to correct the error before admission or progression in the program will be permitted.
