Score Release Dates Are Different If You Tested Using a DVF
If you were approved to test on a DVF, your score will be released on the scoring date only if your transcript is processed before that date. If your transcript has not been processed, your score will not be released until we receive and approve your official final transcript.
If your transcript is approved after the original scoring date has passed, your score will be released in 24-48 business hours from the approval. You do not need to wait until the next scoring date. Your score will also be released to any state licensing boards you requested within the same time frame.
Please send your official final transcript to NBCOT as soon as it is available. Electronic transcripts should be sent to email@example.com and need to be sent through a secure and verifiable transcript service or clearinghouse. If the transcript is mailed, send to our address at the bottom of this page.
