Fingerprint Clearance card

ORDER A FINGERPRINT CLEARANCE CARD (If you do not have a current* card)

Fingerprint Clearance Card application packet & instructions are available OUTSIDE the Radiologic Technology Office (LR 224).  Please note it will cost approximately $65 to order. 

Be advised that it can take anywhere from 4 – 8 weeks to receive your card from The Department of Public Safety.  We will NOT accept Program applications without the card.
