Electronic Fingerprinting Opportunity on Campus for Florida Bar Applicants

The Florida Board of Bar Examiners requires all applicants to be fingerprinted electronically by L-1 Identity Solutions. You must arrange to be fingerprinted as part of your submission of a Bar application, Student Registration, or CLI Registration. Processing of the application or registration will only begin when the Board has received confirmation (either a receipt provided by you or notification directly from L-1 Identity Solutions) that your fingerprints have been taken or scanned. The fee to have your fingerprints processed by L-1 Identity Solutions is $56.50.  Even if you have been electronically fingerprinted for another reason, you must complete a new set of fingerprints expressly for your Bar application.

L-1 Identity Solutions staff will be in the Student Life Office on the Gulfport Campus on Tuesday, November 10, 10:00am – 6:30pm to capture and process student fingerprints. 

Students must schedule an appointment and make their payment directly to L-1 Identity Solutions prior to arriving for fingerprinting.

Once you have been fingerprinted, the fingerprint technician will transmit the fingerprint records electronically to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE).  The fingerprint technician also issues a signed receipt for the fingerprinting service to the applicant.

FDLE processes the background check for the state of Florida.  If applicable, Florida Department of Law Enforcement forwards the fingerprint record to the FBI for federal background check processing.  When the background check(s) is completed, the results are returned to the appropriate employer/licensing agency.
