Accurate Biometrics Background Check

If you are a student in the Elementary, Early Childhood, Special Education, Music Education or Secondary Education teacher preparation program or in the Counseling and Human Services~School Counselor program, you need to have completed a Background Check through Accurate Biometrics BEFORE participating in any Field Experiences. This includes classroom observations, internships, practicums and student teaching. Many districts require background checks performed at the district Human Resource Department.  When a district does not provide this service, Roosevelt University students use Accurate Biometrics to obtain a background check.

Background Check Fees

  • State of IL - $30
  • Federal - $45

TOTAL: $75 (cash only)
