Criminal Background Check

The American Dental Education Association (ADEA) AADSAS has implemented a service for dental schools that wish to obtain a criminal background check on all admitted students. If you are extended an offer of admission to participating dental school, you will be contacted by Certiphi® Screening Inc. after the admission offer has been made to conduct a background check. You may have to pay for your background check, but you should check with the specific school to find out the cost, as it varies from school to school.

If you have any questions about the Centralized Criminal Background Check, please contact:
Certiphi® Screening Inc.
Applicants inquiry only:

If you wish to see what might be sent regarding a conduct issue at UGA, go to Student Conduct. You may ask the Student Conduct office to give you a copy of what they have on file in your records.

In addition, you may be asked for a Dean’s Letter.
