Fingerprinting Service

For members of the Harvard community who need to provide fingerprints to prospective employers, for security clearances, or for bar applications, the Harvard University Police Department will resume offering fingerprinting services effective Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

HUPD will be offering fingerprinting on April 20, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  

Additional dates and times will be added in the near future.

All fingerprint appointments must be made online – we are unable to process walk-ins or phone requests. Please designate what time slot you wish to appear for fingerprints.

Fingerprinting will be conducted by a detective from the Criminal Investigation Division.
