Fingerprinting school teachers, employees, and volunteers

The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) offers fingerprinting services for school districts, charter schools, and other agencies.

Our Linda Vista Office is accepting appointments for Live Scan services Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please make an appointment by clicking the blue "Book a Fingerprinting Appointment Online" button to the right. We will also be accepting walk-ins (as time permits) on Mondays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please be aware that Fridays are often blocked for staff meetings and professional development which affects walk-in service so please check our Important Notices at the right for closures. 

Our North County Office (NCREC) is accepting appointments for Live Scan services on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please make an appointment by clicking the blue "Book a Fingerprinting Appointment Online" button to the right. We will also be accepting walk-ins (as time permits), on Mondays only from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (please arrive by 2:30 p.m.). Fridays we will be closed at this time. Please check our Important Notices at the right for additional closures. 

Please note that our appointment schedule is very limited and appointments fill up very quickly. If you are printing for two separate agencies (such as the Commission on Teacher Credentialing's 41-LS and SDCOE's Clearinghouse), you will need to make two appointments. If you need prints done right away,  you may also go to any Live Scan facility on the DOJ-approved list.

If you have made an appointment at our office and are unable to attend, please cancel the appointment to give the spot to another applicant. Please email us with any questions.
