Fingerprinting

Pursuant to A.R.S. § 32-3280, applicants for licensure shall submit a full set of fingerprints for purposes of a criminal records check unless they hold a valid fingerprint clearance card issued by the Arizona Department of Public Safety ("DPS").

Applicants with a valid DPS fingerprint clearance card will list their card number on their application and include a verification from the DPS website.

Applicants without a valid DPS fingerprint clearance card should review the Frequently Asked Questions below for helpful information on obtaining and submitting fingerprints on an FD-258 card to prevent delays in processing your application.
