NEW EXAMINATION PROCEDURES FOR FE/PE AND FS/PS
The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing has contracted with NCEES to administer the FE, PE, FS, and PS examinations. Applicants must apply to the Division for eligibility to sit for the exams, and after being approved by the board the approved candidate's name will be submitted to NCEES. Candidates will then be required to register for the exam at the NCEES website: www.ncees.org
EXAMINATION FEES: The Division will not be collecting examination fees. Examination fees will be paid directly to NCEES. The Division will continue to require payment of a $50 non-refundable application fee.
EXAMINATION APPLICATION DEADLINE: The completed application, application fee and all supporting documents must be received by the Division's Juneau office at least 14 days prior to each scheduled meeting of the Board. The completed application must be typed and notarized. The application form is available on this website. The board tentatively meets in February, May, August and November. Board meeting dates can be found on this website.
RETAKING A FAILED EXAM: The Division charges no fee for retaking a failed examination, however, you will be required to pay the examination fee to NCEES. If you fail an exam and wish a retake, you must contact the division so we can verify that you are still eligible. We will then provide your name to NCEES and you will be given instruction on how to "register" at the NCEES S website: www.ncees.org.
POSTPONING EXAM: NCEES DOES NOT ALLOW CANDIDATES TO POSTPONE EXAMINATIONS. NCEES will permit a partial refund of canceled exams, but only up to a deadline date established prior to each examination date.
AKLS EXAM: Division staff will continue to administer the AKLS exam. The AKLS exam will be administered following the PS exam, usually in April.
ITEMS NOT PERMITTED IN EXAM ROOM: Items not permitted in the exam room include loose-leaf paper, scratch paper, other unbound materials, and communication devices including but not limited to pagers, cellular phones, cameras, and recorders. Calculating and computing devices having a QWERTY keypad arrangement similar to a typewriter are not permitted. Cell phones are also not permitted in the exam room.
