Special education licensure program

Criminal Background Check

The application process includes securing a limited criminal background check from the Indiana State Police. This background check encompasses the request for limited criminal history information (form 8053) and university verification that the student has been cleared by Indiana's Sex Offenders Registry, which is called the Zachary Law.

Applicants can either download form 8053 and submit it via the mail or apply for a limited criminal check online at the Indiana State website. There is a difference in the fees as submitting form 8053 is $7.00 and completing the form online is $16.32.
