  • You are a resident of the State of Connecticut

  • You have a criminal record (from any state or federal jurisdiction)


For those individuals who have recently completed a sentence (discharged) or are on parole or special parole, the following applies:


  • If you are currently under supervision with the Department of Correction’s Parole and Community Services Division, you must have successfully completed 90 days of supervision;

  • If you have recently successfully completed your sentence (discharged,) are not currently under supervision, have no new arrest(s) and have been in the community for a minimum of 90 days.


If any of the following apply, you are not eligible to apply for a COE:


  • You are currently incarcerated;

  • If you had a case “nolled” within the previous thirteen (13) months, you are not eligible to apply for any type of pardon, including a COE, until the nolle has cleared.  A nolle remains for a period of thirteen (13) months after the date of disposition by the court;

  • If you are currently on Probation and have more than 90 days of supervision left (you must apply through your probation officer.)
