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 should schedule an appointment and bring their blank fingerprint card with them.
State Background Check (Ohio Bureau of Investigation) - $32
National Background Check (FBI) - $34
Fingerprinting - $10 (per card)
