Due to COVID-19, Campus Card Services is not currently offering in-person fingerprint background checks.

Campus Card Services provides background check services to individual students as well as programs complying with the University’s Youth Protection Policy.

Individual Background Check Request

For individual students needing a background check not related to the Youth Protection Policy, please complete an Individual Request for a Background Check form. Once the form is submitted, a member of the Campus Card Services team will follow-up with next steps to completing your background check.

Background Checks for Youth Protection Policy

Per the University’s Youth Protection Policy, any programs or activities that involve interactions with minors on University property, or University-sponsored programs or activities held at off-campus locations, must be registered with the University.

  • If you are a student group, please visit the Campus Life website for details on registering your program or event through WUGO.
  • If you are faculty or staff, please visit the Youth Protection website for details on registering your program or event.

Once registration is submitted, a member of the Youth Protection Committee will follow-up with the program administrator regarding details on completing background checks and required training. If you have questions about your program, activity, or event in regards to the Youth Protection Policy please contact Becki Baker, current chair of the Youth Protection Committee, at b.baker@wustl.edu.
