How to Obtain a Criminal Background Check

Are your students interested in volunteering with minors or children?  If so, they will need a criminal background check.  Generally, they'll need three different clearances:  (1) PA Child Abuse History, (2) PA Criminal Record Check, and (3) FBI Criminal Record Check. 

Most of the work can be completed online.  Click on the links below to learn more.  For additional information, including nearby fingerprinting locations, check out the related document entitled "How to Obtain a Criminal Background Check."

Governor Tom Wolf ordered that starting July 25, the PA criminal history and child abuse history record checks will be provided for free to individuals obtaining them strictly for volunteering purposes.
