The University of Colorado - Boulder Police Department is happy to provide fingerprinting as a service to our community.  But, we are limited in the amount of time that we can dedicate to fingerprinting each day.  We only provide this service Tuesday through Friday from 3:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Unfortunately, we are not able to continue fingerprinting after the scheduled end time, even if you are already in line before that point. We do not make appointments, it is first come first served.

Other agencies who fingerprint:

Boulder Police Department

Boulder Sheriff’s Office

Items to bring:

  • Bring any fingerprint cards that you have been given for that purpose. If you do not have a card, you must know certain informational codes such as the Originating Agency Identification Number (ORI), the Colorado Revised Statute (CRS), and the address of the requesting entity (where the result of the fingerprint-generated background check will be returned).
  • A valid government-issued identification card such as a driver’s license or passport is required before fingerprints will be taken.
  • To save time, print and fill out this form.  You can fill the form out at the office.
