According to UVM, apparently they do. Now my problem is, i've received 2 tickets in the past two years: one for a rolling stop, the other an illegal left-hand turn. I attended traffic school for one, and paid for the other. And while I have no problem listing them, I've submitted 5 secondaries before this saying I had no convictions (I didnt' realize that some schools would count traffic violations as convictions until I read UVM's secondary). What should I do? Call the schools and ask if they need to know about my tickets, then ask if I can modify my secondaries? Or is UVM one of few exceptions that count tickets as criminal convictions? UVM's criminal conviction policy found on their secondary app: Criminal Conviction Parking violations are the only convictions you are not required to document. Please follow these guidelines: For speeding tickets: you do not need to list them if they occurred 5 years ago or longer. For all other tickets, you must list them on the supplemental application. In addition, if you have received four (4) or more tickets in the past two (2) years, you must list them on the supplemental application and submit copies of the documentation of the offenses. Please contact the jurisdiction(s) that issued the tickets to have copies submitted to the Office of Admissions. Other Convictions: all other convictions must be listed on the supplemental application and documentation provided to the Office of Admissions, regardless of the amount of time that has passed. As noted on the Supplemental Application, failure to provide accurate information may provide grounds for disciplinary action, including dismissal or revocation of an offer of admission. Admitted students who enroll at UVM COM may be subject to a criminal record check before the beginning of classes in August 2007.
