The students will not have to incur any costs for the fingerprints, we incur this cost, so they will not need to bring their checkbooks. They will need to bring a photo ID, SS Card and a TB screen. They should have obtained the TB screen prior to coming to our office for fingerprints and they will have to incur that cost as we do not cover that cost for TB screens.

For students who have a confirmed placement with SCPS, these links are to an online orientation that corresponds to the placement type that the UMW student will be completing with SCPS. The presentation includes all the steps and forms for your students to complete their on-boarding process with SCPS Human Resource Department. SCPS is requiring that all students complete the on-line orientation and to personally bring in all their filled out forms to the Human Resources Department and be finger printed before they contact their cooperating principal and teacher/supervisor! Failure to complete and submit these forms and be finger printed before they contact or start their placement could result in their placement being delayed or canceled! All fees and notary requirements will be covered by SCPS.
All students, regardless of placement, must complete the UMW Consent Form and return it to Terry Luttrell.
