XUPD is performing background checks for Xavier students on a limited basis. Here is the information that can assist you in obtaining your course work-required FBI/BCI background check:
On the below days police officers are available from 7:30 am - 2:30 pm to perform BCI/FBI background checks.
Tuesdays through Fridays 7:30 am - 2:30 pm
This website will be amended with dates in August as soon as they are available.
The form you need to have completely filled out before you arrive can be found at the link at the bottom of the page. When you arrive, park in front of Flynn Hall (1648 Musketeer Drive). Call 513-745-2000 and let them know you are here. A police officer will come out to your car and escort you in. You will be asked to wear a face mask while in the building. You will need your driver's license or state-issued ID and your All-card. If you encounter a line of others waiting to be fingerprinted, please remain in your car until a police officer indicates that it is your turn.
Fingerprint services are available at the Xavier University Police Department for any member of the Xavier University Community. The days and hours during which fingerprinting is conducted are Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 2:30 PM. No appointment is necessary, however, this service is based on staff availability.
Most background investigations require electronic submission of fingerprints. Some require fingerprint cards; Xavier University Police does not offer these types of fingerprinting services. You can contact the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Identity Unit at (513) 946-6400 for assistance.
The cost of electronic fingerprinting is $62.50 for the State of Ohio and FBI checks. Individuals being fingerprinted will be billed through the Bursar's Office for the background check. We do not accept cash or credit cards.
You should allow seven to ten working days, but it may take up to thirty days, for the results of the check to reach their destination. If you need to know if the background check was received, contact the department it was sent to. The Xavier Police Department cannot check on the status of the background check or if it has arrived.
If the department that the background check was mailed to did not receive it and it has been longer than 30 days, contact the Ohio Attorney General's Office at 877-224-0043.
