Illinois State University (ISU) is transitioning, in the Fall of 2019, to requiring all ISU teacher candidates to complete a one-time online National Criminal Background Check. The new NCBC will replace our previously required yearly Illinois State Police criminal background check. The NCBC will offer greater expansion into criminal histories to ensure the protection of ours pre K-12 students by verifying the teacher candidate has not been convicted of illegal activity nationally. The steps below must be followed with results being reported to the Teacher Education Center before students may begin any clinical experience.
