Effective January 1, 2019, the FBI portion of the Criminal Background Check fee will increase from $17.00 to $18.25. Due to this increase, the cost of the CBC fee for the Board of Veterinary Medicine applications and reinstatements will increase from $32.00 to $33.25.
Minnesota law and Board policy now require that all applicants for initial licensure or license reinstatement must complete a fingerprint-based criminal background check (Minn. Stat. § 214.075). Veterinarians with existing licenses may be required to have a one-time criminal background check (CBC) in the future in conjunction with license renewal.
