Good Moral Character (GMC)
Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 112, sections 74, 74A, and 76 require you to provide specific documentation for GMC evaluation if you answer yes to questions related to criminal or disciplinary history.
GMC also requires your consent, at the time of application submission, for a background check to be conducted by the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) database. If there is a supported finding by DCF, you will be required to provide additional documentation related to those findings.
See Licensure Policy 00-01 for the Board’s policy on Determination of Good Moral Character Compliance.
Frequently asked questions and other important information is found in the Good Moral Character information sheet.
