Who We Are:

The Criminal Background Check Program (CBCP) provides criminal background check (CBC) services to sixteen of the Minnesota Health Related Licensing Boards (MRLBs).

What We Do:

The CBCP collects and processes the fingerprints and forms required to complete a CBC for anyone who has applied for initial licensure with one of the MRLBs or is having their license reinstated, or as part of a licensure-related investigation.

Please Note: The CBCP is unable to assist with a background check requested for any other purpose. Nor can we assist with a CBC prior to receiving a CBC request from the board. In most cases, the board makes the request to the CBCP after the application fee has been processed.


Effective January 1, 2019, the FBI has increased the cost of the CBC from $17.00 to $18.25. As a result, the total CBC fee (included with your board application fees) is now $33.25.

The Criminal Background Check office has moved locations within our building. Mail sent to our previous suite number, 555, should still be delivered to our new suite, 445, but all new mailings should be addressed to our new address (see footer).
