Criminal Background Check

All applicants complete their Criminal Background Check (CBC) online. Applicants will receive an email link from our CBC vendor, Applicant Insight, on behalf of UTSA to the email address provided by the department. Applicants expecting a CBC should monitor their junk/spam folders. The CBC form must be completed within 48 hours or it will expire and then must be resubmitted. All CBCs must clear before an applicant can begin employment at UTSA.

Please note: individuals cannot submit their own background check requests. All requests must be submitted by the department on behalf of the department.
