Renewing your CBC

The vendor currently used by the UW SOM to conduct criminal background checks (CBCs) is Certiphi Screening Inc.  Students can log in to the Certiphi website and create an account.  The SOM will automatically receive a copy of the report via the website.

Instructions for initiating your criminal background check online:

  1. Paste the following link into your browser: http://www.applicationstation.com 
  2. Enter the Code: UWASHSOM in the Application Station Code field. 
  3. Click the "SIGN UP NOW" button to create an account.  Do not select “sign back in”. You will need to create a new user name and password each time you complete a new CBC application. Proceed with creating the username and password for your account.
  4. Follow the instructions on the Application Station web site. 
  5. It may take a few days for the report to be completed.  The UW SOM will receive a copy of your background check, it is not necessary to notify us of it's completion.

  7. You will be asked to authorize a $100 charge to your credit card.  Most background checks cost around $70 depending on how many counties and aliases are listed.  The difference will be refunded to your card after the report is completed. If you can’t remember your exact address just list the county and zip code.
