Rowan University has a policy to perform a fingerprint check on new hires, previous employees that have had a break in service of six (6) months or more and adjuncts that have not taught in the past academic year. Since employment is contingent upon the results of the background check, the process needs to be completed in a timely manner. Positions will not be held open for failure to follow the procedures for the fingerprint check.
Candidates that have been fingerprinted by another employer must be fingerprinted by Rowan. The University CANNOT accept fingerprint results from another employer.
Exemptions: Students enrolled at Rowan are not covered by this policy.
The University will attempt to make this process as easy as possible. Fingerprinting must be completed and the results received by Rowan before the start of employment. Rowan University is working closely with the New Jersey State Police and a fingerprinting firm identified by them for the fingerprint process. New hires will be working directly with Sagem Morpho, Inc.
