It's Important to Understand When Your Exam Will be Scored

Exam scores are released on the dates shown on the calendar below. If you want your exam result on a specific scoring date, which are the dates filled in with blue, you MUST take your exam a minimum of three days before that score release date. Those dates are shown circled in light blue. 

There are no exceptions to this. It is essential to plan your exam day with the scoring calendar in mind.

    Score Release Dates are Different If You Tested Using a DVF

    If you were approved to test on a DVF, your scores are not released until we receive and approve your official final transcript.

    Once we approve your transcript, your score will be released in 24-48 business hours. 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 timeframe.

    Please send your official final transcript to NBCOT as soon as it is available. Electronic transcripts should be sent to 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. 

    Important Dates
