Background Check Process

The Office of Human Resources is responsible for processing background checks, monitoring the hiring process for consistency, and associated training.

 In addition to verifications required by law, employment offers for all permanent positions and limited term positions of more than six months shall be contingent upon a successful criminal background check facilitated by the Office of Human Resources. The University may perform, or require, criminal and other background verifications on candidates regardless of duration of employment or student, volunteer, independent contractor, vendor, or intern status as required by law or University policy, upon a determination the position requires such background check.
