Alert Tab Statuses and What They Mean

We often get asked what a particular status, which may show under the "Alerts" tab of your eLicensing account, means. Here is the list of alerts that may show and what each of them mean.

Alert

Description

No Fingerprint/Background Results Received (may also be a blank status) This alert indicates that CDE has not received fingerprint results from the CBI and or the FBI.
Must Resubmit Fingerprints per CDE/FBI This alert indicates that the applicant's fingerprints have been rejected by the FBI. Due to the rejection, CDE will notify the applicant of this issue by sending an email to the last email provided in the applicants eLicensing account. The majority of rejections CDE receives are due to poor quality and/or characteristics of the actual fingerprint image. Generally, the rejection has nothing to do with any criminal history information or an applicant's fitness for licensure.
