Rolling Fee

We charge a $20.00 rolling fee. This fee is in addition to any other agency processing fees associated with your LiveScan service.

  • Rolling Fees and Agency Processing Fees must be paid by cash or money order only.
  • We do not accept checks, credit cards or bills larger than $20.
  • Money orders must be made out to San José State University Police Department or SJSU PD

Agency Processing Fees

Each governmental agency such as the FBI or California Department of Justice that processes your LiveScan fingerprints charges a fee based on the service that they provide. These agency processing fees can range from $17 to $110. These fees are in addition to UPD Rolling Fee of $20. The combination of these fees is due at the time your LiveScan service is provided.

There may be an exception for your Agency Processing Fees. If your LiveScan Application has a billing number in the "Agency Billing Number" line (a six digit number beginning with "1") then the agency or company requesting your LiveScan will be billed directly by that agency for the Agency Processing Fees and you will only be responsible for the UPD Rolling Fee ($20).
