HR Background Check

Click on Request Service to submit a background check request.

This service should be used to request background checks for the following:

  • Student Employees with Safety/Security Sensitive Duties
  • Adjunct Faculty not hired through the PeopleAdmin process
  • Volunteers
  • Rechecks/Annual Requirements for Youth Programs (every 3 years) or Youth Skills Camps (annual)
  • Motor Vehicle Searches for current employees/students

New hires processed through PeopleAdmin or the Part-Time Adjunct Hiring Request in TeamDynamix do not require a separate background check request ticket.   Background Check Requests submitted for these hires will be cancelled as they are automatically initiated by HR during the hiring process. 

Please do not submit a request more than 2 months prior to the employees start date. Once submitted, requests are routed to HR for approval. Accepted requests are then submitted electronically to the background check vendor, HireRight. The applicant will receive an email from HireRight describing how to access their website to provide the information necessary for the background check to be processed. Background checks take an average of 10 business days to be completed from the time the applicant submits their information to HireRight.
