Fingerprinting services locations change for Penn State campuses

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Due to a recent change in the state’s contracts for fingerprint services in Pennsylvania, fingerprint services have changed for Penn State campus locations.

This is a statewide change. As of Nov. 28, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services has transitioned from its former provider, Cogent, to security and identity company Idemia to process fingerprint-based FBI criminal background checks. Idemia's fingerprint service provider, IdentoGO, declined to offer on-campus fingerprinting services.

To find the Pennsylvania IdentoGO location nearest each campus, visit https://www.identogo.com/locations/pennsylvania.

Penn State will continue to communicate with Idemia to address challenges resulting from this change, and develop solutions. Contact the Office of Ethics & Compliance, Youth Programs Compliance at 814-865-8785 for more information.
