You MAY NOT participate in required field experiences UNTIL your background check has cleared. Failure to receive clearance in a timely manner could delay you a semester or more in the program, as you will have to repeat the semester to complete field experiences.
Your admissions letter will give you instructions on the clearance process. Please make sure you read it carefully.
To complete the Teacher Education background check process:
- Visit the USBE Background Check website to start the process.
- Click on initial licensure and continue through the step by step process.
- Print out the authorization letter. This letter MUST be submitted at the time of your scheduled fingerprinting appointment. Do not skip this step!
- Make arrangements to visit a USBE Live Scan site:
