Criminal background checks
Students should contact their advisors for updates to program offerings. Students admitted to programs that require a clinical or co-op component may be required to provide the college with an official criminal background check in order to meet the requirements of the clinical or co-op site. Convictions for certain crimes and/or evidence of drug use may disqualify students for participating in clinical or co-op experiences, which would limit their progress toward graduation.

Length of programs
The length of Wake Tech programs is set by the North Carolina Community College System and published in the NCCCS Curriculum Procedures Reference Manual. All Wake Tech degree, diploma and certificate programs are of the same quality and rigor and meet the same standards for student achievement regardless of the mode of instruction or location (traditional-seated, online or hybrid).

Professional licensure

Wake Tech academic programs (credit and non-credit) that are designed to lead to professional licenses are tied to North Carolina or national certifications. If you intend to pursue professional licenses outside North Carolina once you have completed your academic program at Wake Tech, please refer to the Professional Licensure section on the college's distance education authorization page for additional information.
