Live Scan Services

The Department of Public Safety has established a program designed exclusively to provide Live Scan fingerprinting services for our campus community and the public. Applicant Live Scan fingerprinting is an automated digital processing program that submits requests for criminal history record information for employment, volunteer positions, and licensing and certification. The program coordinates processing of applicant fingerprint transactions and the California Department of Justice relays results to the requesting agencies.

Individuals interested in electronic fingerprinting must present the following:

  1. Live Scan application (provided by requesting agency)
  2. A VALID Government issued Picture ID (ie, California ID or Passport. If the individual has a high school ID, a Birth Certificate or Social Security card is required.)
  3. Accepted Method of Payment: Check, MasterCard/Visa, or Money Order (Cash is not accepted)
