Background check unique concern

Do employers ask your school for disciplinary records? I received a few driving tickets on campus 2 years ago (legal issues have been resolved). Also, I believe I'm under some kind of sanction for the school resulting from this situation, basically it is saying that if I mess up again, there won't be any warning. But this does not impede my ability to graduate, take classes, etc. And I can get myself off this list by doing community service and writing an essay, I just never got around to it as it's not necessary for graduation.

Edit: One of the execs who has been a point of contact regarding the situation just said that it would only come up if they specifically ask for previous disciplinary records, so do employers ask for this?

They definitely won't ask for that, the background check is literally a quick criminal check done by a third party, they are not sleuthing you by any means.

Banks don't give a flying fuck about driving tickets anyway.

My good friend from home had 2 DUI's in college and broke in.. I don't think they'll bat an eye at a ticket. Their main concern is charges that imply violent behavior and/or fraud. They don't care about a mistake you made in college, which I wouldn't even say you did - they care if you appear to be a violent person or someone who may try to defraud/steal from the company. Don't worry about it man.
