Criminal Records Check
A criminal record check including a vulnerable sector screen must be completed and submitted to Synergy Gateway on a yearly basis.
Students should contact the police service in the area in which they reside to obtain a police check.
For students residing within the city limits of Peterborough while attending Trent University (including students in residence), the Peterborough Police Service will hold two on-campus days in the Fall semester when students can request a criminal record check and vulnerable sector screen. See below for details.
For students residing in Toronto and attending the George Brown Waterfront campus, please see below.
A Toronto Police Check requires an application form. In order to receive the police check form, you MUST:
