Finger Print and Background Check Info

In November 2017, the State of Pennsylvania changed from Cogent Fingerprinting to IndentoGo. For a number of weeks whilst this was in flux, many employees and students were not able to obtain their FBI clearance. Access to fingerprinting has now been restored under new procedures. The two local fingerprint locations that we recommend are below, but please note that you must first register for an appointment online with the code in the memorandum and take that receipt with you to the location and pay at the facility (you received an email in Outlook about the memorandum).
