Go to http://www.certifiedbackground.com/ and click on "students."
In the package code box, enter package code: on60
Select a method of payment: Visa, MasterCard or money order.
Once your order is submitted, you will receive a password to view the results of your background check. Results are typically available in 48-72 hours.
