What are the hours and address for OCDE's fingerprinting services?
Orange County Department of Education
200 Kalmus Drive
Costa Mesa, CA 92628
We offer fingerprint/livescan services by appointment only between the hours of 9:00am - 4:00pm.
Should I process my application through a School District/County office instead of sending it directly to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC)?
Why do I need to be fingerprinted again if I have already been cleared by CTC for my Certificate of Clearance:
I have already been fingerprinted for another agency/employer. Do I need to be fingerprinted again?
The Department of Justice (DOJ) does not share your information with other agencies. It is against the law for different agencies to share confidential fingerprint results with each other. An applicant's Request for Live Scan Request form acts as a release for a criminal history response to be sent to the specific requesting agency. This means you need to submit a new Request for Live Scan form each time a criminal history report is requested.
What is the Clearing House Consortium (CH) and why do I need to be printed for this?
