LiveScan fingerprinting process

The University Police Department (UPD) has been providing Live Scan services to students, staff and various businesses and institutions in our community since the early 2000’s.  We process over 2000 live scans annually. 

Walk-ins welcome however, scheduled appointments are processed first. 


Live Scan technology allows digitally scanned fingerprints and related information to be submitted electronically to the Department of Justice. For more information about Live Scan go to the California Department of Justice website:

What to bring:

  1. Government issued photo identification, such as a current driver's license, passport, military ID, etc.  (paper copies, student ID or temporary licenses are not accepted)
  2. Two copies of your completed Request for Live Scan Service form (BCII 8016 form). We do not provide Live Scan forms. You must obtain this form from your employer.  We cannot complete your Live Scan without your employer's ORI number and information.
  3. Bring cash or money order (SJSUPD) for the required fee to be paid at the Parking Services window.
