Frequently Asked Questions
Q – How do I know what provisions I have on my license?
A – You can see the provisions on your license by visiting nvteachersearch.doe.nv.gov/ Enter your first and last name into the search field, then select your name and license. Here you can view the provisions listed on your license.
Q – Can I just show up for the course and register and pay then?
A – No. If you have not registered, received a verification email of registration, and paid for the course before the course date, you cannot attend.
Q – Will I receive confirmation that I have been enrolled?
A – You will receive an automated email and payment receipt when you submit your registration and deposit. Because space is limited and these classes fill quickly, we cannot guarantee registration until we have verified availability. You will receive a second verification email, no later than one week prior to the class start date, when you have been successfully enrolled in the requested courses.
Q – I submitted my registration form, but have still not received a verification email of registration. What should I do?
A – If you have NOT received a confirmation email a week prior to the class start date, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This may mean that the course enrollment was met, and you will need to register for a course later in the semester (if available) or the following semester.
Q – How do I drop a course, or change to a different session?
A – Email email@example.com for assistance. Make sure you include the specific class(es) you have registered for and both daytime and nighttime phone numbers. The request to drop or change must be received before the first day of the course to avoid payment.

Your confirmation email will include directions to pay your balance on the online Payment Portal. You will need the SNC Student ID number included in your verification email.
Any balance that is not paid prior to the beginning of the course is subject to interest charges, and transcripts will not be released until your account is paid in full.
