As a part of our membership process, Shriners International requires that you complete a background investigation before your petition may be accepted by the temple.  The cost for this check is $18.95 and is the responsibility of the person petitioning the temple.  If at any time you wish to withdraw your petition from consideration by the temple, prior to it being formally received by the temple, please notify them.  In that event, your petition and completed background check will either be returned to you, or destroyed, at your option.  By providing this information electronically, it can be safely and securely transmitted to our background check vendor instantly.  This enhanced process can remove days of waiting from the overall process.

After you submit your application you will receive an email with a link and directions for the background check.
