Background Checks Information

The University will work with our current vendor (Justifacts) to complete two of the background checks (PA State Criminal check and Child Abuse History Clearance).  You will receive an email from Justifacts with a link, payment code and instructions on completing the child abuse application.  You will have 72 hours to complete the background check authorization process after that the link will expire.

In addition, you will need to complete the FBI fingerprints by registering with Identogo and visiting the site to have the fingerprints taken. 

Payment codes for the fingerprints can be obtained by emailing askhr@esu.edu.
