As a student, you must also possess the following abilities, with or without reasonable accommodation, for completion of undergraduate courses:
- Ability to perform in all laboratory and classroom settings without posing a threat to herself/himself, to the safety and well-being of fellow students.
- Ability to work cohesively and harmoniously in a team of two or more students in the performance of required classroom and laboratory activities.
- Ability to see and hear, with or without reasonable accommodation, in order to fulfill classroom and laboratory requirements.
Qualified persons with disabilities, with or without reasonable accommodation, must be able to pass oral, written and practical examinations, and meet all of the classroom and laboratory requirements of the University.
It is in the best interests of both the student and Northwestern to assess the degree of limitation caused by disability. However, Northwestern will make the final determination of whether or not an individual meets all qualifications for study at Northwestern. Northwestern’s accommodations process is found under Disability Services for Prospective Students. Questions regarding qualifications or accommodations should be directed to the Office of Student Affairs.
Misdemeanor and felony convictions
Persons who have been convicted of a misdemeanor of a violent or sexual nature or any felony will be prohibited from professional healthcare practice in many jurisdictions. Northwestern Health Sciences University will deny admission to applicants with such convictions. The University therefore reserves the right to conduct a criminal background check on all applicants or on any enrolled student, at any time, in the program.
