Criminal Background Checks

Any individual contracting to use Bucknell facilities for an overnight summer camp must provide a roster of all adults (18 years or older) who will be working or volunteering at the camp, including coaches and student athletes, as well as required background checks for each of those adults. The background checks must be dated no more than four years prior to the start of the camp session. (If a coach/staff person had a background check performed prior to or as part of his/her university employment, that check can be used as long as it is dated no more than four years prior to the start of the camp session.) All staff background checks must be completed and turned into the Events Management Office ten (10) working days prior to the start of camp.

Required searches:

National Criminal Database Search: 7-year minimum
Statewide Unified Court Search: 7-year minimum

Below are two servicing companies. You may use a different vendor for the screenings as long as equivalent searches are completed.

  1. Justifacts. This year coaches/camps will have their own established accounts. Our goal is to have a link on the Summer Camp/Conference web site for easy access. Candidates pay for their own background checks using PayPal. The quoted cost is approximately $39.75 (unless international or living in a state where additional fees are applicable).
  2. IntelliCorp. This year coaches/camps will have their own established accounts. Our goal is to have a link on the Summer Camp/Conference web site for easy access. Each camp will have their own portal to complete the application process. The quoted cost is approximately $22.95 per check (unless international or living in a state where additional fees are applicable).

The Events Management Office will no longer be the facilitator of the background check process. The University will not pay for any background checks for 2014 regardless of cost.

Our office is willing to meet with coaches who have additional questions. Please email Jennifer Wagner or Gina Stockdale to request a meeting.
