Criminal Background Check (CBC)

  • All CBCs will be processed by Human Resources starting August 8, 2011

  • Please do Not send forms to the UTSA Police Department

  • Starting September 1, 2011 Departments will be billed for CBCs

CBCs will be processed based on Employment Category  

It is important that the correct CBC Form is filled out legibly and correctly based on employment category. If you have any questions please contact Human Resources at (210) 458-4648.

The Criminal Background Check process is an integral part of the hiring and the reclassification processes. Departments will be required to make sure the CBC Form is filled out completely and legibly. A federal or state government picture identification document will need to be presented to verify the information listed on the CBC Form. 

The CBC Form can be sent to Human Resources by fax to (210) 458-8586, by campus mail (Attn: CBC), or hand delivered to the Human Resources front desk at the North Paseo Building - 4th Floor - 4.102 on main campus.

Departments may also wish to send their applicants to Human Resources to have the CBC Form filled out; however Section A will need to be filled out by the department. 

REMEMBER: Incomplete or incorrect forms will be returned to the hiring department and will result in a delay in processing!

The UT System Policy UTS124 – Criminal Background Checks for Security-Sensitive Positions and the UTSA HOP Policy 4.30 (presently being updated) contain the guidelines and criteria that relate to security sensitive positions. The President of The University of Texas at San Antonio has determined that all jobs at UTSA are security sensitive.
