Fingerprint Information

The total cost of fingerprinting is $67 for the Department of Justice (DOJ) prints.  This is $32 cash to Eureka City Schools to pay the DOJ fees for the Live Scan form and up to $35 cash to pay for the printing process.  If we require the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) fingerprint clearance then it would be an additional $17 cash for the FBI Live Scan. Eureka City Schools will reimburse you for this expense if you bring a receipt back to the Personnel Office.

STEP 1:  Eureka City Schools

Go to one of the fingerprinting locations in Humboldt County.  (A couple of sites are listed below for your convenience.)

No appointment is necessary for the printing process.  You will give them the Live Scan form and they will perform the scan of your fingertips.  You must have photo identification with you.  The printing fee ranges depending on where you print. Their fingerprinting schedules and prices may change, so you might want to call and confirm their current hours.
