DPS Fingerprint clearance Card - not required prior to entry, but required prior to externship participation. Note: If the student is unable to complete externships as scheduled due to non-performance of this item, they may be dismissed from the program. Obtaining a fingerprint clearance card takes 6-8 weeks. Therefore, it is critical that this step be completed prior to entry into the program. The cost varies (between $10-$25) for the fingerprinting (payable on the day of service) and $65 for the application to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
