    Fingerprinting Instructions

    The New York State Education Dept. is eliminating the use of the current NYSED managed fingerprinting process which includes all NYSED Livescan fingerprinting systems and current “ink and roll” card submission process. 

    All new employees and substitutes​ 

    will need to be fingerprinted through MorphoTrust


    .  MorphoTrust will be accepting new fingerprint applications / appointments as of August 3, 2015.  Appointments will not be available until this date.

    ​  If you have already been fingerprinted through a NY public school district or for your NYS teaching certification, you will not have to be fingerprinted again. 


    Please visit the MorphoTrust website at:  http://www.identogo.com .  Here you will be able to schedule your own appointment and pay for the fingerprinting process.  The total fee for fingerprinting is $99.25 and will be paid to MorphoTrust.
