How should I answer the self-disclosure questions on the Background Check Authorization Form? What if I do not know the date of my conviction(s)?

Your answers to self-disclosure questions become part of your background check history and are stored in BCCU’s criminal history database.  Self-disclosures are reported as part of your background check result like any other background check history we receive.  It is important that your answers to self-disclosure questions are accurate and consistent.   It is recommended that you answer self-disclosure questions the same way each time you complete the Background Check Authorization Form unless the question has changed or the previous answer was wrong.  It is highly recommended that you refer to your court records, charging papers, or other official documents before answering self-disclosure questions.  Inaccurate or missing information may result in a delay in processing your background check. 

If you have multiple self-disclosures, please attach List of Additional Crimes or Pending Charges (DSHS 09-653D) (WORD) or an additional sheet of paper with full name, date of birth, crimes and/or pending charges, degree, state, and conviction date.

Also, see the Background Check Authorization Form (Word) instructions on pages two and three.
