As a follow-up to our Sept. 15 announcement, all campus departments have now fully transitioned to using the new background check request form and the online candidate process effective Dec. 30, 2014.
In support of the University’s efforts to ensure campus safety through the background check process, here are some important reminders:
|Important Reminder||Additional Instructions|
|Submit the Background Check Request Form in a timely manner||
Note: Background check results remain valid for 90 days. Submitting a background check too early will result in the department having to complete a new background check prior to the hire/appointment date. Submitting a background check request late will result in compliance issues and the hire/appointment being delayed.
|Use the correct version of the Background Check Request Form||
Note: Failure to use the correct form will result in the request being returned to you for completion before the background check will be conducted.
|Fully complete the Background Check Request Form||
Note: Incorrect or incomplete forms will be returned to the department for correction or completion.
|Provide correct chartfield information on the Background Check Request Form||
Note: Providing incomplete and/or incorrect chartfield information will result in a delay in completing the background check process.
|Properly submit the Background Check Request Form||
Note: To ensure security of sensitive information, never email any forms or documents that include Social Security number (SSN).
