Notice about your criminal record information

Your fingerprints and other data will be sent to the Western Identification Network and Federal Bureau of Investigation for the purpose of obtaining your regional and national criminal history records.  You have the right to challenge the accuracy of any information contained within the FBI criminal history record.  The procedure for changing, correcting or updating an FBI criminal history record can be found in Title 28, CFR, 16.34.  You may have the right to see or be informed of the specific criminal record information obtained by the qualifying entity according to Utah State Law.  You may obtain a copy of your criminal record information by contacting the Utah State Bureau of Criminal Identification.

The WSU LiveScan Fingerprinting Office can only submit electronic versions of fingerprints for Weber State University programs, Utah State Office of Education licensing, and other select Utah State programs.  We cannot do fingerprint cards, or fingerprint you for programs outside the state of Utah. 

Effective May 28th, 2012, the Education Fingerprinting Office will only offer minimal hours of operation, typically by appointment only during the listed times. If you are not a WSU Student seeking fingerprinting for a University program, or you are seeking fingerprinting services for another Utah State sponsored program (coaching, internships, teacher re-certification), it may be more convenient for you to visit one of the other LiveScan sites, such as the Ogden School District site.  Please refer to the other LiveScan community sites listed by the USOE.
