Under Texas law, if you apply for or enroll in a DCCCD program that may prepare you for an initial occupational license, and/or if you later decide to change to one of these programs, please be aware that:
Note: This notice applies only to students who plan to pursue a course of study for which an occupational license may be necessary when they finish a program. It should not be considered applicable generally to students who are not pursuing study in a program for which an occupational license is required.
This information is being provided to all students enrolled in or planning to enroll in a DCCCD program that prepares them for an occupational license regardless of whether the person has been convicted of a criminal offense. We encourage all applicants and enrolled students to review the eligibility requirements for their program and the related occupational license.
Note: The criminal history evaluation letter is separate and distinct from any criminal background check requirement that may be required for enrollment in a particular DCCCD course.
The information provided here is not exhaustive. Questions about a particular licensing authority’s guideline, eligibility requirements or requests for a Criminal History Evaluation Letter should be directed to the applicable licensing authority.
