    • FDLE statewide search
    • FBI nationwide fingerprint-based check
    • Notification of warrants or domestic violence injunctions
  • There are three types of Level 2 Background Checks:
    • Candidates for employment
    • Volunteers (non-summer camp) - non-paid volunteers
    • Summer Camp Candidates & Volunteers being considered for a role in a University-sponsored summer camp. (See the Summer Camp Background Check Page for more information.)
