Entrance Requirements

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:
    1. Go to https://www.aps.gemalto.com/index.htm.
    2. Click on the New Mexico box.
    3. Register online. You will receive a Registration ID number. You must be fingerprinted within 90 days of registering.
    4. Once you are registered, you may go to any of the fingerprint sites. Results will be sent directly to SUNM.
    5. 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.
