Criminal Record

When applying for admission to BW School of Education teacher licensure programs, candidates are asked whether they have ever been found guilty of a misdemeanor or felony that was not expunged or sealed. Candidates with a criminal record that has not been expunged or sealed are not eligible for admission to the teacher licensure programs at Baldwin Wallace University.

BW School of Education verifies that students have a clear Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCII) report and a clear Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) report. Forms and details will be provided to all students who qualify for admission to the program. Once enrolled, students must have the same clear reports prior to any school observation, field experience or clinical practice assignment. Although students with an expunged record may be eligible for enrollment and to participate in school placements in BW's Education programs, an expunged or sealed record may impact a student's eligibility to qualify for an Ohio teaching license following completion of the program. Eligibility for a teaching license varies by state and may be assessed on a case-by-case basis by the professional teacher licensing board in that state.
