Criminal Background Check (CBC)

All Criminal Background Checks (CBC) will be processed by People Excellence (PE).

All applicants will now complete their CBC online, eliminating the need to fax and/or hand deliver CBCs. Applicants will receive an email link from our CBC vendor, Applicant Insight, on behalf of UTSA to their personal email address. Please remind the applicant to check their junk/spam folder and inform them they have 48 hours to submit the information. Otherwise, it will expire, and the request has to be resubmitted.
