Requesting a Background Check

UMW’s background check applies to the final candidate identified for volunteer, wage, classified, administrative/professional and faculty teaching positions, including adjunct and professional development positions.

This also applies to current employees who move into positions designated as sensitive as defined in the University’s background check policy, or whose current job duties are expanded to include those of a sensitive nature.

Important:  State police criminal records checks are now being required as part of the University background check process.  All individuals are required to complete an Authorization Form (SP-167) in the presence of a notary to initiate the state background check.  This online request for a background check will be initiated upon receipt of the Authorization Form in Human Resources.
