1. What if my fingerprints were rejected at the Illinois State Police level?
- You must come back and get re-fingerprinted and pay the fee of $42.00 cash again. If you were sent to be fingerprinted by a school district for a full time position, they will typically cover this cost.
2. What if my fingerprints were accepted at the Illinois State Police level but rejected at the FBI Level?
- You must come back and get re-fingerprinted as FBI only which is a $10.00 cash fee. If you were sent to be fingerprinted by a school district for a full time position, they will typically cover this cost.
3. What if my fingerprints were rejected a second time?
- MOST of the time, we are able to do a name based check with two rejected fingerprint results at the Illinois State Police and FBI level. However, some professional licenses require you to be re-fingerprinted until they decide to do a name-based check themselves! Feel free to contact us with more questions.
4. What if I lost my fingerprint receipt?
- You may come back and get a copy of your fingerprint receipt or call and receive the TCN over the phone. Many Professional Licenses require a paper copy of the receipt to be mailed with all other required forms.
5. I was fingerprinted for one professional licenses, can't you use the results for a different one?
- No. Your fingerprints are captured and sent for one specific purpose, whether it be for substitute teaching, concealed carry or an IDFPR license. You are issued a TCN which reflects that single purpose. You must be re-fingerprinted for any other professions.
6. I have been waiting on my fingerprint results for weeks, what is going on?
