Your name and fingerprints will be sent to the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for a nationwide criminal background check.
The background check can take anywhere from 24 hours to a few days.
You can withdraw your Go Pass application at any stage in this process.
If there is no need for additional information or clarification, you will be considered eligible for Go Pass service. You will receive a welcome notice via email, and you can start using your Go Pass card.
If there is a need for additional information or clarification, you will receive a notice from the NYC Department of Education's Office of Personnel Investigation asking for your permission to investigate the matter. You will have an opportunity to explain the situation to the investigators, who will work to determine your final eligibility for Go Pass service.
You can withdraw your Go Pass application at any time, which will end the investigation.
