University Compliance

Overview

Resurrection University motivates all students to nurture self-health by being compliant with university health requirements as well as any additional and site – specific requirements delegated by the school’s clinical partners. Health requirements applicable to all programs offered by ResU include immunizations, annual requirements, and conditional requirements. Compliance is contingent on successful completion of conditional requirements. Some programs have program-specific requirements that must be completed. All students are expected to abide by the school’s compliance policy throughout enrollment in their program. We use CastleBranch to manage student compliance. Upon acceptance to the university, you will receive additional information specific to your program regarding setting up an account.

Resurrection University partners with CastleBranch to successfully track student health compliance and ensure student success. This system allows students to order their background check, drug test, and store all required documents throughout the duration of their program. Your enrollment fee includes the initial cost of your CastleBranch account, with any ongoing clinical site-specific requirements requiring additional fees. The exception to this is students who defer enrollment and require a repeat drug test and/or background check. These repeat requirements will require the student to pay the fee associated with the requirement.

Please note that many of our clinical partners have additional requirements. Students are expected to complete clinical site compliance  requirements in a timely fashion and by the deadline set by the Clinical Placement Office. Some sites require more recent health requirements, including but not limited to: Drug tests, TB/PPD, background checks, or fingerprints. Students are responsible for any additional costs associated with clinical.
