Criminal History Background Clearance

Please note: Faculty and Staff are handled by Human Resources and should not use the process below. This website is for students and visitors only.


Peabody College takes seriously the safety and security of minors and vulnerable populations who reside, study, and are served in various ways on our campus daily. As such, each faculty, staff, or student who has Peabody as their home college as well as others who are enrolled in various classes, labs, or work settings are required to undergo a criminal background check. This check is in accordance with Tennessee law.


The background clearance process involves 3 steps that you must complete in an Oracle Learn course titled Peabody Background Clearance Process.  

There are two different offerings (sections) of this course: Fingerprint and Non-Fingerprint. Be sure you are enrolled in the correct offering! 

Your program of study determines which type of background check is required. Click here to view program requirements.

If you have had a background check within the last four years we  may  be able to accept that clearance. Please contact for further information and determination.  

Note: you may be pre-enrolled in the course. This will show in the "my learning" section of your account when you log in. If you are not pre-enrolled you can self-enroll
