Colleges and universities routinely ask applicants about their criminal arrest history.Graduate and doctoral programs are even more selective regarding their applicant’s personal history.
If that personal history contains an arrest record, then you are just asking them to deny your admissions application. Not fair, but true.
Even if your criminal arrest record does not deny you admission into the college of your choice, it can negatively impact whether you will receive grants, scholarships and other financial aid that you so desperately deserve.
Some colleges will not allow students with a criminal history to live on campus or compete for work-study programs.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way….TAKE ACTION!
