I sent all of my information in as of June 26th. I called the board on Monday and they verified that they had in fact received all information and was waiting for my background results. They told me it could take 4-8 weeks to get everything approved. Does anyone from AR know if it'll actually take that long to process?
First of all, congratulations! I received my license at the beginning of the year through Arkansas. I paid my fees on January 13th, submitted my fingerprinting about a week later, and received my license around February 12th so I would say that 4 weeks for processing is about normal. However, I believe the board only meets once a month so it just depends on the timing of when you submitted everything and when they are meeting next. I had some former coworkers who I believe got theirs in about two weeks.
