Request for Background Check via Electronic Fingerprinting


Required. As part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the safety of our students, employees, and visitors, we require all finalists for employment with the college to submit their fingerprints to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (and Federal Bureau of Investigation, as appropriate) in order to obtain a criminal history background report. Convictions do not automatically preclude employment with the college. Several factors are considered when evaluating a candidate's criminal conviction history relative to his/her eligibility for employment with the college. These factors include the nature of the crime, the time that has elapsed since the conviction, and/or relevance to the position for which the candidate has applied and is being considered.

The Lakeland Human Resources Department, located in Room C-2103, is equipped to capture a digital image of your fingerprints and submit them to the appropriate agency. There is no need to schedule an appointment and the department is staffed for fingerprinting, Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Before reporting to the Human Resources Department, you will need to: 1) complete and print the Fingerprint Control Form for Employment (2 pages) and 2) print and sign the Disclosure and Authorization form. Please bring the completed and signed forms with you, along with your driver's license or state-issued photo ID.
