Background Investigation Committee - Student

Purpose and Functions

The purpose of the Criminal Background Investigation Committee (Student) is to ensure that the College adheres to federal and state law and policies of the Board of Regents concerning background investigations of students and applicants for admission and readmission. Its functions are to recommend policies and procedures as necessary and proper to accomplish its purposes and to review background investigation reports and determine the eligibility for admission, readmission, continued enrollment, tutoring, student teaching, study abroad, and on-campus housing.

East Georgia State College works to ensure the safety of our campus community and student population, so all students who self-declare; wish to live in on-campus housing; or declare teacher education as a major, must be cleared by the Criminal Background Investigation Committee for students prior to their attendance.
