NCEES Exam Registration Deadline

The exam registration window is now open for the October 2016 PE and SE Exams.

Examinees must have approval to sit for the exam in Texas. Current Texas EITs that have not previously taken a PE Exam will be automatically approved. All approved examinees will have specific limitations on the number of exam attempts remaining and the time period allowed in which to take them. Register online with NCEES to reserve your seat for the exam. Your exam type, discipline, module, and/or site cannot be changed after the NCEES registration deadline.

Please note once you have registered the NCEES system will temporarily display your status as PENDING BOARD APPROVAL until an automated confirmation is received from Texas. If you receive this message, you do NOT need to do anything and you do NOT need to contact TBPE.  TBPE will reconcile all approved applications prior to the deadline.
