Background Check Information for U.S. Citizens or US Permanent Residents living outside of the U.S.

Disclaimer: The background check process for tutors living internationally does take quite a bit longer due to the time it takes to mail items back to the U.S. for processing.

Background Check Information for International Tutors

  • If you do not live in the continental United States,  you will need to follow the hard copy fingerprinting option in the instructions that were sent to you. This means you will have your fingerprints taken in ink onto a fingerprint card at a US embassy, consulate, or through a local law enforcement agency. Please ensure all documentation is recorded in English.
  • You will be reimbursed for costs associated with your fingerprint processes, including the out-of-pocket expenses related to international postage. Upon mailing back your completed hard copy fingerprint cards, please ensure that you attach the correct postage for the envelope to be properly returned back to the United States. Please complete this form for reimbursement.
