Background Check ($20)

In April 2001, the Oklahoma legislature passed a law stating that any person seeking a teaching license shall have “on file with the Board [Oklahoma State Department of Education: OSDE] a current Oklahoma criminal history record from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) as well as a national fingerprint based criminal history record provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”

Therefore, all individuals visiting schools or community settings on behalf of Langston University are required to submit to a background. The cost of the background check is approximately $20 per year through the OSBI.

NOTE: Individuals convicted of a felony or of a crime involving moral turpitude are NOT eligible to complete Practicum hours.

Annual Events

Fitness Gram Physical Fitness Test (November/April)

All HPER majors are required to take a physical fitness test two times a year. Data is collected to see if our majors are staying physically fit. We encourage our majors to be physically fit for a life time. We also allow other majors to take the test and our students will learn how to properly administer all physical fitness tests.
