The following information applies to all FE and FS applicants.
The Alabama board does not require examinees to submit an application or an additional fee prior to registering with NCEES and scheduling an exam. Examinees may register for their exams by creating a MyNCEES account.
Examinees will be provided one attempt per testing window and no more than three attempts in a 12-month approval period, beginning with the examinee’s first attempt. Examinees who require more than three attempts or allow their 12-month approval period to expire must contact the Alabama board directly to obtain additional approvals.
Exam results for the computer-based FE and FS exams are typically available within 7–10 business days. Examinees will receive an email notification from NCEES with instructions to view their results in their MyNCEES account. Results will include a link to your licensing board for additional state-specific information or instructions as appropriate.
All results are reported as pass or fail. If you fail the examination, you will receive a diagnostic report showing your performance for each of the major topics covered on the exam.
Cancellations and refundsRefer to the section on computer-based exams in the NCEES Examinee Guide for information about cancellations, refunds, and rescheduling.

How do I register?
You must first apply to the Alabama board for approval to sit for the exam in Alabama (deadline: January 15 for the April 2015 exams and July 1 for the October 2014 exams). Visit the board’s website for instructions on the approval process.
After the board has notified you of your approval, register online with NCEES (deadline: August 28, 2014) to reserve your seat for the exam.
NCEES will email you 2–3 weeks before the exam with a link to download and print your exam authorization notice. Read it carefully. You will be required to present this document along with a valid, government-issued photo ID upon arrival at the exam site.

Cancellations and refunds
You may cancel your exam registration through your MyNCEES account any time before the NCEES registration deadline (August 28, 2014). Refunds will include exam fees paid to NCEES during the registration process minus a $50 processing fee.
Funds may not be transferred to a later exam administration date. After the NCEES registration deadline, registrations may not be canceled and fees will not be refunded.
