NSLP Overview


ATTENTION: We will not report results to the Department of Education or to districts if you do not have a teacher's license number. The Nevada Department of Education cannot remove provisions without a Nevada teacher's license.

If you do not yet have your teacher's license, please keep your official test results memo for verification. It will be your responsibility to give the letter to the Department of Education and the district(s) of your choice. You can go to the Nevada Teacher Licensure Verification website to find out your teacher licensure number.

If you need additional copies of test results, please do the following: (a) send us a request, including your full name, address, and the approximate date you took the exam, and (b) include a signed, $10 cashier's check or money order, payable to the "Board of Regents," to:

Nevada School Law Project

IMPORTANT NOTE: We have updated the Nevada School Law Handbook for Teachers (2016 -gray cover) and it will be available for purchase in both the Reno and Las Vegas bookstores by the end of the week of August 15th. If you are planning on registering for exams in October 2016 or later, you will need to purchase this new 2016 edition. If you are testing in August or September, we will still offer the old test so you will be okay with the 2013 edition (hot pink cover). However, starting in October, we will only give the new test which corresponds with the 2016 (gray) version of the guideIf you decide not to purchase the newest edition, you will be at a disadvantage as there are new laws and regulations discussed in the 2016 version. 

The Nevada  School Law Project (NSLP) at the University of Nevada, Reno administers tests that assist teachers in removing 3 specific provisions from their licenses: Nevada School Law (0001), Nevada Constitution (0002), and the U.S. Constitution (0003). We provide both General Exam Sessions and Monthly Exam Sessions. All three exams noted above are offered at every testing session.

General Exam Sessions are offered 2-3 Saturdays a year and typically have fairly high enrollment. Register for a General Exam
Monthly Exam Sessions are offered 2-3 times per month, all year long and have lower enrollment. Register for a Monthly Special Exam

Please continue to check our website for exam dates. We require online registration and payment for all General Exam Sessions; if you register for a Monthly Exam Session, you will pay before taking the test(s).
