Notice Regarding Criminal Background Checks

An applicant applying for a chiropractic license by examination or credentials is required by 12 AAC 16.030(7) or 12 AAC 16.033(10), respectively to submit an official criminal background check from all states in which an applicant has ever been licensed and from the primary residence state. Please note the following:

  • Criminal background checks can come directly from the issuing agency to our office.
  • Criminal background checks can come from the applicant if the report remains in its original, sealed envelope.
  • The preferred method of receiving background checks is via hardcopy mail.
  • Criminal background checks will be accepted via e-mail only if it can be verified that the sender e-mail belongs to a government e-mail address or similar authority.
  • Some states do not allow distribution of criminal background checks to third parties or will not provide a report to the applicant if the intent is to forward it to a third party. If you have been licensed in a state that does not authorize the release of a criminal record report to a third party, please submit supporting documentation.

Renewal and Reinstatement Applications

Renewal Notice:

Due to the COVID-19 emergency and in line with SB241, the Alaska Board of Chiropractic Examiners modified the continuing education requirements for the January 1, 2021 – December 31, 2022 biennial licensing period. The required credit hours, for chiropractors who were licensed for more than two years, was reduced to 16 hours; all of these required CE hours may be completed online, except for specific hands-on competency hours, such as dry needling. Specific credit requirements, such as X-ray, ethics/boundaries, coding/documentation, etc., remain in effect but were reduced by half.

For additional information, please see the Continuing Education Guidance on the CBPL COVID-19 Information webpage or contact the licensing examiner by email at: BoardofChiropracticExaminers@Alaska.Gov

Please do not submit your certificates with your renewal application. Only submit documentation of your continuing education activity if you are notified that you have randomly been selected for an audit.

NOTE: Licenses lapsed or in retired status for more than five years may not be reinstated. See the initial license application.
