DPS Fingerprint Clearance
• Arizona: The FP Clearance card must be submitted prior to

Safety for forms &/or questions:
When requesting a fingerprint clearance card, please ask for a "Healthcare Student" card
(which encompasses criminal and sex offender checks performed at the federal and state
levels). In other words, per the Fingerprint Clearance Card application, students are to

coverage. (e.g., Copy of insurance card.) This

departments. Contact your Enrollment and/or Finance Counselor (FC) to learn about
GCU insurance policies and costs, if you already have alternate health insurance
