Criminal History Evaluation Letter

If you are interested in enrolling with a training program and you are unsure whether your criminal background will affect your eligibility, there is help.



Potential trainees and applicants interested in becoming an aide can request HHSC to provide a criminal history evaluation letter regarding their eligibility.


To request a criminal history evaluation letter, you must complete a Request for Criminal Background Check Eligibility: Form 5537 and submit fingerprints.


HHSC staff will review your criminal history and provide a criminal history evaluation letter within 10 business days after receiving your fingerprint results.


This letter verifies if you are eligible to become an aide.
