The Board is required to consider the following factors in deciding whether to grant a license to an applicant with one or more criminal convictions:  (1) the nature and seriousness of the offense(s); (2) the nature of the specific duties and responsibilities for which the license is required; (3) the amount of time that has passed since the conviction(s); (4) facts relevant to the circumstances of the offense(s), including any aggravating or mitigating circumstances or social conditions surrounding the commission of the offence(s); and (5) evidence of rehabilitation or treatment undertaken by the person since the conviction(s).  Applicants for licensure do have the right to petition for a pre-application eligibility determination prior to meeting the general qualifications for a license.
