Fingerprint Retention Requirements

What happens if I fail to pay my fee?

If your retained prints are not renewed prior to the expiration date, they will not be retained in the Clearinghouse and you will be required to be fingerprinted again.

How will I know when my retained fingerprint data is expiring?

The Department will notify licensees prior to the 5-year expiration date to renew enrollment in the Clearinghouse.  The notification will contain instructions on how to renew your enrollment and pay the retained print fee.
