Required Certificates for the UNI Teacher Education Program
SING Background Check- The UNI Teacher Education Program requires MOST students to complete this background check one time during their program of study. The SING Background Check needs be completed before students begin their first field experience at UNI. The exception is Early Childhood Majors who must complete a SING Background Check every two years. Please click here for a copy of the SING documentation and complete all sections with a star.
FBI background check - Only for Early Childhood Education Majors. This additional background check is required by the Iowa Department of Human Services (DHS). This background check is valid for four (4) years. No other majors need to complete this special background check.
