The offer of employment to UW positions designated as security/safety sensitive must be made contingent upon obtaining a satisfactory criminal conviction history background check.
This page describes the criteria and the criminal conviction background check requirements for the six categories of “security/safety sensitive positions” at the University.
UW conducts a suite of criminal conviction background checks on the selected candidate for employment in a security/safety sensitive position. Charges for the criminal conviction background checks outside of Washington depend on the number of locations in which a person has resided.
