Required Steps to Attend LWTech If You Are Or Have Been Justice Involved

  1. If you are an individual with an RSO (registered sex offender) designation, there are some required processes which you can find in the Student Handbook.
  2. A few of our programs of study require background checks for clinical placements and you may not be eligible for placement or future employment in some situations. Each program webpage posts this information in the β€œAt a Glance Section” or you can ask your advisor about your specific situation.
