Criminal Background Check

The Secondary Application currently requires a response to the following questions:

  • Have you ever been subject to disciplinary action in any of the schools, colleges, or universities you have attended?
  • Have you ever been convicted of a criminal or military offense (other than a minor traffic violation)?

In addition, the University of Kentucky College of Medicine requires students who are selected for admission to undergo a criminal background check. The College of Medicine has contracted with the Association of American Medical Colleges to participate in an AMCAS-facilitated criminal background check service.
