Background Check Price Increase to $72 on 8/1/15

Dear stu­dents -

As you know, the Health Sci­ences Pro­grams at the Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton con­tracted with the ven­dor, Ver­i­fied Cre­den­tials, to pro­vide stu­dents with lower cost back­ground checks nec­es­sary for clin­i­cal work.
The pur­pose of this memo is to inform you that the price of back­ground checks is going up for the first time in 9 years. This change is due a nation­wide increase in court access fees and an increase in fees by the Wash­ing­ton State Patrol.  As a result, our ven­dor has increased the price of back­ground checks by $7 — increas­ing from $65 to $72.  This will go into effect 8/1/2015.
As you move for­ward and need to re-order your back­ground checks accord­ing to your pro­gram sched­ule, please be aware of the pric­ing change.  I’ve updated the prices on our back­ground check instruc­tion sheets and Clin­i­cal Com­pli­ance pol­icy which are all posted on Typhon in the “Pro­gram Doc­u­ments” section.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you -
Julie
