College of Medicine Background Checks

College of Medicine students are required to complete a background check by Wednesday, July 31, 2024. These background checks are completed through a company called One Source. Please do the following to complete your background check:

  1. Access the background check form.
  2. There is a fee for this service, which will be made directly to One Source when you submit the form. Please have a credit card ready to pay the fee.
  3. Once you submit your One Source background check, you will receive a supplemental email directly from DHHS.CFSCR@Nebraska.gov to complete your Nebraska Adult and Child Abuse registry check. If you have changed your legal name within the last 90 days, the background check must reflect the new name in all sections of the check. The College of Medicine cannot accept documentation with differing legal names.

If you have any questions please contact One Source at 402-933-9999 or 1-800-608-3645.
