Background Check for the MSW Program
All applicants to the Master in Social Work program are required to complete a criminal background check. These background checks are done using the online services of CaslteBranch.com. The package cost is $64.50, and is paid online at the time of submission. To complete the background check:
- Visit CastleBranch.com
- Click on the "Place Order" button
- Enter in the Package Code: ii24, and click the "Submit" button
- Follow the directions to set up your myCB account, and submit your background check
Please remember that you will need to monitor your background check after it is has been submitted, and follow up with the fingerprinting process as directed.
When you submit your background check, you will receive an order confirmation. Please save this as a .pdf document. Use your last, first name in your filename (i.e. mouse, mickey confirmation.pdf). Upload the document to this secure box storage folder by clicking here. This will open an email to the box folder (it may take a few moments). Then, attach the form to the email and send.
The criminal history check must be "in progress" or completed before an application is accepted for review. A recent background check conducted by the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare may be acceptable with documentation.
