Welcome to the Utah State Board of Education's Online Background Check System.

Utah Law (53A-1a-512.5) requires that each applicant for a Utah Educator License must satisfactorily complete a background check. A background check is also required of applicants desiring to renew a Utah Educator License that has expired. To complete the background check, an applicant must submit fingerprints for review by the Utah Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The procedure for the required background check includes fingerprinting. You must choose between a LiveScan electronic fingerprint submission or a card fingerprint submission. Prior to making this choice, please review the factors related to each method of fingerprint submission.
