We do not do Ink Rolled Fingerprints (On a fingerprint card)
It is up to you and the entity wanting your background check / fingerprints to determine if you need ink prints, electronic, or both.
Prior to coming in for a background check/fingerprints, be sure to read everything on this page. It will help you to be sure your background check is done correctly and quickly.
You MUST have a state issued form of identification with you at the time of your background check.
Different people need one, or both, of the background checks, depending on what they’re doing that a check needs to be completed. (i.e., education, employment, adoption, volunteering).
It is up to you and/or your employer, school, or other entity, to provide this Department with the proper information related to all background checks. This information includes, but is not limited to, name, DOB, SSN, required reason codes, name and addresses of receiving person(s) or Company, proper Direct Copy recipients, or any other relevant information. If you do not provide the correct information, and choose to proceed with your background check procedure, and it is incorrect, the responsibility is yours. We stress that you do research to be certain you have the correct information. Ideally, your school, employer, or prospective employer, will provide you a form with all the required information you need to have your background check completed as well as who the background check is sent to. We are not responsible for inaccurate or incomplete information entered on your behalf, that is provided by you.
Be sure to have information you may need to bring with you on paper.
This office takes a digital image of your fingerprint impressions, inputs your personal information and sends it electronically to Ohio BCI&I to be processed there. Ohio BCI&I conducts the check and sends the results to the listed recipient that you indicate via U.S. Mail. Ohio BCI states the processing time is between 1 to 45 days for the results.
Eastern Gateway Community College Security Department is simply a location where you can come and have the check initiated. We do not house the information, do not complete the background check, and cannot provide copies of previous checks, as none of the information is held here.
If you have questions, please call the Security Office 740-264-5596 and ask for Paul or Linda. You may have to leave a message and they will call you back.
