All Students are required to complete the FBI Fingerprint

  1. After you have completed the online order application, you will need to complete the Letter to the FBI and Authorization for Release Form provided in your acceptance letter.
  2. Please visit your local sheriff’s office/police department to be fingerprinted. The cost to do so may vary. Or you can visit to find a FBI Fingerprint location near you. It is recommended that you call the fingerprinting location before getting your fingerprints rolled. Below are some questions that you may want to ask before going.
    1. Do I need an appointment?
    2. Can you provide me with an Fingerprint Card (FD-258)?
    3. What hours do you conduct fingerprinting?
    4. Do you conduct Ink based fingerprints or electronic?
    5. If you do electronic, can a copy of the electronic fingerprints be printed onto an FBI Fingerprint Card?
    6. What is your fee for fingerprinting?
      **Please Note: The fingerprinting fee that individual companies charge to roll your prints WAS NOT included in your package.**
  3. Be sure to bring Photo Identification to the facility.

Once you have the following forms completed:

  • Letter to the FBI
  • Authorization for Release Form
  • Fingerprint Card with your rolled prints

Please mail all three forms to American DataBank at:
