Criminal Background Check

Criminal Background Check Policy

Criminal Background Check Policy According to Tennessee law, every student MUST obtain a Criminal Background Check prior to admission to the UT Martin Educator Preparation Program and any in-school observations. This Background Check MUST be conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). There are two exceptions to this rule: (1) The teacher candidate is currently employed in a school system and can provide a copy of the background check in accordance with above guidelines OR (2) The teacher candidate has had a “Child-Related Worker Private” TBI Background Check in the last calendar year and can provide a copy of the Background Check. (Example: Today is September 28, 2017: Student A had a background check on September 28, 2016, she can utilize it; Student B had a background check on September 27, 2017, she cannot utilize it). Please direct all questions to Ms. Staci Fuqua, sfuqua2@utm.edu, or 731.881.7203.
