UC Public Safety provides background checks and fingerprinting services for licensing and other needs. We use an electronic system called “WebCheck" which electronically scans an applicant’s fingerprints and sends them to the Ohio Bureau of Identification for a check of the applicant’s state record. The prints can also be forwarded to the FBI, if necessary, for a national background check. Applicants in need of ink fingerprinting for licensing must bring their blank fingerprint card with them during the hours below.
State Background Check (Ohio Bureau of Identification) - $32
National Background Check (FBI) - $34
Fingerprinting - $10 (per card)
Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
