Criminal Background Checks
An individual applying for an initial license or certificate for certain license types shall submit to a national criminal history background check at the cost of the individual. Criminal history background checks are not required for renewal applications.
WARNING: A criminal background check (CBC) must be submitted after the application for licensure is submitted to the Professional Licensing Agency.
An applicant will receive an email from their respective board with the official date the application was processed. Fingerprints must be submitted on or after the date of this email notice for the CBC to be considered valid and timely. CBCs conducted prior to the email notice date will not be considered. For more information, please see “Frequently Asked Questions” below.
Applicants Under 18 Years of Age
Applicants under the age of 18 should only obtain a limited criminal background check from the Indiana State Police.
