scores will be automatically forwarded to me.

will be sent to you at that service. (You can find the agencies that provide
NMDOH Fingerprint services by clicking here
• Upload your clinical clearance documents for each of the individual
"Assignments" by the deadline dates listed in your packet.  We will review them

you've completed that requirement successfully.  A -1 grade means something is
wrong and you need to review the comments we have posted to that assignment
