Fingerprinting Information
As provided in NRS 628.190 the Nevada Board of Accountancy is mandated to conduct an Investigation of Criminal History on all applicants for CPA Certification. Background (fingerprint) submission may be done by the following two methods.

Fingerprint Cards
Fingerprint cards can be obtained from the Nevada State Board of Accountancy. Most law enforcement agencies will conduct the fingerprinting process. A fee will be charged per card.

Only light blue civil applicant cards will be accepted. Please complete TWO (2) fingerprint cards. All cards must be printed or typed in BLACK INK only. Do not bend cards where fingerprints are to be placed. Make sure both fingerprint cards are complete with all personal information such as name, address, sex, height, weight, social security number etc. Incomplete cards will be returned which will delay the processing of your application.

Electronic (LiveScan) Fingerprinting
You can choose to have electronic fingerprints submitted by one of the private fingerprint sites listed in the link below. These sites have met the technical security requirements to electronically transmit fingerprints to the Nevada Department of Public Safety via the approved Nevada Gateway (L-1 Enrollment Services Division)

You will need to download the Electronic Fingerprinting Form and bring it with you to the fingerprint site so that the technician can sign the form. You will need to submit the signed fingerprint form along with a completed Fingerprint Background Waiver Form to the Board with your application materials. Make sure to sign and date the fingerprint background waiver form prior to being fingerprinted.
