Acknowledgement and Background Check Release

I acknowledge that a criminal background check is required by Nevada law to participate as a Promise Program mentor. I authorize the College of Southern Nevada to work with a third party vendor to conduct a criminal background check.

If for any reason I do not meet the background check requirements, the College of Southern Nevada will inform me in writing and will provide me with the information of the third party vendor so that I may contact them for further information.

I agree to complete the mentor application and authorize the background check electronically.

Employees of identified and verified partner organizations that conduct criminal background checks as a condition of employment, may be exempt from submitting to an additional background check. Employers will be notified of the desire of employee to apply to the program and will certify their employment and background check.

If my employer is one of the identified partners, I hereby authorize CSN to communicate with my employer to verify that I meet the requirements of criminal background check established for the Promise Program. I do so by electronically authorizing the verification with my initials below.
