NEW: ONLINE SUBMISSION FOR PA CHILD ABUSE CLEARANCES
The Dept of Public Welfare/Childline has now established an electronic submission for the PA Child Abuse History clearance (under the new Dept of Human Services). The LINK is below.
Please be aware that it still can take some time to be able to print the certificate when submitting online. Another person has reported that it took a week after applying online to receive the ability to print the certificate.
When applying it is recommended that the student also check the box for a paper version to be mailed to a home/campus address (as a precaution), though the electronic version may be used as valid proof of the clearance.

Please pass along to other faculty and staff members. All students in field classes for Spring 2015 semester that have not yet scanned clearances have been emailed.
I will be updating the clearance webpage right away!
