Educator Licensure

Application Timelines and Provisional removals

While our physical offices in Carson City and Las Vegas are closed to the public during the COVID-19 outbreak, our Department continues to conduct business and process applications as quickly as possible. Please understand that our Licensure team is working remotely and a slight delay in processing documents received via US Mail / UPS / FedEx may occur. Transcripts can be mailed or placed in a drop box outside of suite 210 in our Las Vegas office. Our staff are communicating continually with individual licensees to address any such delays.

Please remember to add to your approved email recipients, to avoid our communication going to spam / junk.

Important Licensure Information: 


  • In order to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 precautions currently in place, all educator licenses and provisions expiring between March 1, 2020 and September 29, 2020 have been extended through September 30, 2020.
