Criminal Background Check
All applicants must complete a background check through Gemalto.
This is the same procedure necessary to obtain a Naprapathic license from the New Mexico Medical Board.
The cost is $44.
To complete the background check:
- Go to https://www.aps.gemalto.com/index.htm.
- Click on the New Mexico box.
- Register online. You will receive a Registration ID number. You must be fingerprinted within 90 days of registering.
- Once you are registered, you may go to any of the fingerprint sites. Results will be sent directly to SUNM.
- Complete processing of the background check is approximately two (2) weeks. Plan accordingly so SUNM can process and review your application materials prior to the next Quarter beginning.
