All residents are required to complete a background check. To provide a safe living environment for our students and their families, all students (and spouses) applying for Seminary housing or at the request of the Office of Enrollment Management will be required to pay Viewpoint Screening for a background check service as a condition precedent to occupancy and/or enrollment. The background check will include the following information: Country Criminal – County of Residence, Residence History, and Nationwide Sexual Offender index.

When you go to the Viewpoint Screening website go to “Select School” and from the map, choose OHIO and find “Ashland Theological Seminary”. There are two packages to choose.

The Seminary reserves the right to deny occupancy, admission or revoke this contract based upon information received through the background security check.
