Utah Law (53A-6-401) 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.
To begin this process, go to the USBE Online Background Check System. You will need to pay $40 to USOE to begin this process. This will be a step in the online process. (Note: As a Jordan District Licensed employee, this fee will cover your fingerprinting fee at the District Office.)
