I want to write my licensing examinations in November or March: when do I apply to the Licensing Process?
You can apply any time but you must be fully registered and pay all applicable exam and material fees by no later than 30 business days prior to the examination date. Your official final transcript or NCA certificate of qualification must be on file by no later than 30 business days prior to the date of your first examination. In order to be fully registered, you must have submitted all parts of the application, supporting documents and applicable exam and study material fees.
When and how do I submit my official final transcript/Certificate of Qualification?
All transcripts/NCA documents confirming that your degree requirements have been met are due immediately upon completion of the requirements OR no later than the deadline posted on the “Dates to Remember” section online if your program is still in progress.
All transcripts/NCA documents confirming that your degree requirements have been met are due by no later than 30 business days prior to the date of your first Licensing Examination if you have completed your educational requirements. Please note that first time writers of the June examinations who graduate in May June of the same year may have their law school submit their final transcript by the August deadline (in the same year).
We do not accept final proof of education documents submitted by you. The Licensing and Accreditation Department must receive the proof of education directly from the issuing institution.
