Apply for your exam
Ready to Apply for Your Exam? Follow these steps:
Hard copy transcripts must be mailed to NBCOT.
Electronic transcripts must be sent using a secure and verifiable service or clearing house.
Sending documents to NBCOT before you have applied for the exam will delay your application.
After you apply for the exam, you must have your school send your official final college/university transcript. It must include the degree date and degree title. The degree must have also been awarded.
Transcripts with a graduation date that is after the transcript issue date will not be accepted.
Degree Verification Form (DVF)
Using the DVF allows students who have met all degree and graduation requirements, but will not receive their transcript due to the release schedule of their school, to take the exam.
If you use this form when applying for the exam it must be within six months of your anticipated graduation date and within the same calendar year of graduation.
