Effective September 14, 2010, the fee charged by Cogent Systems for Federal (FBI) Criminal History background checks, required by Act 114 of 2006, will be reduced from $36.00 to $33.00.
When the applicant requests the “unofficial” paper copy, the additional fee of $2.50 still applies. The registration process for the applicant remains the same. The only change the applicant will experience is the reduction in the fee. We are modifying the information on our website to reflect this change.
Within the near future, there will be a change to the watermark paper used for the paper copy. The new paper will have the Pennsylvania Keystone seal rather than the seal of the Department of Education.
