Richmond City:

UMW students may contact Timothy Williams or (804)780-7864 in the Human Resources office 301 N. 9th Street 15th floor to complete their background check screening.  The cost is $137.00. The screenings are available daily, however, the best times would be Wednesdays through Fridays between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.


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.  Before coming into Human Resources, students need to complete the Student Teaching Application which requires you to have your TB screening/results to upload.  When coming into HR, students will need to bring a photo ID and SS card. 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.

The point of contact regarding fingerprints for student teachers and practicums is Lindsey LaBossiere. She can be reached at 540-834-2500, ext.1500 and her email address is
