Pittsburg State University strives to provide the safest possible environment for students, visitors, faculty and staff. In an effort to maintain a safe environment the University conducts pre-employment screenings (Background Checks) on new employees. The pre-employment screening includes a criminal background check and may also include a credit history report if necessary for the position. Before making an adverse decision, PSU will provide you with a copy of the consumer report and a description in writing of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
