Practicum and Field Experience Documentation

Prior to your participation in any practicum or field experience at GCU, you must submit a copy of an official Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card or the official results of your federal fingerprint background clearance from the Department of Public Safety or a comparable agency in your state of residence.

This documentation should be sent to a Teacher Education Specialist for your state. If you are seeking Institutional Recommendation in Arizona for a teaching or administrative credential, you must have both an Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card and fingerprint or background clearance documentation from your state of residence.
