Criminal Background Check

Why Do ASSIST Representatives Need a Background Check?

The Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET) and the U.S. Department of State mandates that all representatives working directly with an international exchange student must submit to a criminal background check.


If a background check has already been conducted as part of your school employment process within the last 12 months, please provide a statement from the Head of the School on the school’s letterhead confirming this fact.
