Disciplinary Clearances

Is the job, school or program you are applying for asking about your disciplinary history at WCU on their application?
If so, you may need to get disciplinary clearance from the Office of Judicial Affairs and Student Assistance as a required part of your application. Please read the directions carefully on your application so you understand what information is being asked of you. If disciplinary clearance is necessary, please contact the Office of Judicial Affairs at 610-436-3511 or stop by our office in 238 Sykes Student Union.

Remember, you will need to bring the form that needs to be completed by Judicial Affairs to the Office of Judicial Affairs and Student Assistance in 238 Sykes for processing. It typically takes 24-48 hours for a form to be processed. After checking your disciplinary record in order to complete the form, the Director of Judicial Affairs signs the form and stamps it with an official Judicial Affairs seal.

You will typically need Disciplinary Clearance if you are applying for any of the following:

  • Study Abroad
  • Graduate School
  • Medical and Law Schools
  • Law - State Bar Applicants
  • US government positions and employment positions that require governmental security clearance
  • Police Academy Applicant and Police Officer
