Fingerprint Clearance Requirement

Arizona state law requires any person who participates in a teacher preparation program to obtain an “Identity Verified Print” (IVP) Fingerprint Clearance Card. Arizona school districts require that college students be fingerprinted prior to participating in field experiences at their schools. When requesting an application packet please make sure you specify that you need the “IVP” application packet.

Where can I obtain an IVP Fingerprint Clearance card?

Please go to the following website to schedule an appointment.  Allow 20 minutes to complete the online forms.  Remember to have a credit card ready.  There is a fee to obtain your fingerprint clearance card but don't worry, it is valid for 6 years and is necessary for the teacher preparation programs at all colleges and universities.
