Before applying to the Surgical Technology program either as a direct application to the program or a change of curriculum student, you are instructed to seek advisement from the Surgical Technology Academic Department Chair. You may accomplish this by electronic advisement using the email address [email protected] or request a personal appointment.
Applicants are encouraged to carefully read the following requirements to ensure a complete and accurate application.
After completing the above steps of the admissions process and it is determined that you meet the admissions criteria, the Dean of the School of Health Professions will have a letter sent to you regarding the completion of the Criminal History Background check (CHBC). The letter will provide you the information needed to complete the process electronically. This check must be completed within five days of receipt of the letter. It is imperative that candidates understand that the CHBC is a requirement of the accreditation agency of our clinical education centers and not of Bergen Community College. The applicant is to read and follow the School of Health Professions policy for criminal history background checks, since the outcome of this report affects admission into this program. The cost for the background check is $70.00.
