Applicants with a felony conviction must provide additional documents when submitting an application for enrollment or a license. The application and the felony conviction documentation will be reviewed and a decision will be communicated to the applicant within fourteen (14) business days after submitting the application.
All applicants with a felony conviction must write a letter to the Executive Director explaining the incident and what they have learned from it. Applicants convicted of a felony that includes acts of violence may be reviewed by the Board at a Board Meeting for licensure approval.
The following documents must be provided in addition to the letter, application, and application requirements:
- A Final Court Order
If a Final Court Order is unavailable, an Initial Court Order with the current case status is required.
If the applicant is on parole and/or probation, a letter indicating the applicant's current parole and/or probation status is required.
There is no felony crime that automatically prevents an individual from licensing. Applicants with a violent felony must receive Board approval.
