An NCEES Record is for licensed engineers and surveyors who plan to practice in multiple states. It provides a means of storing and transmitting your professional records—such as transcripts, exam results, and employment references—in order to apply for licensure in an additional state or territory (a process known as comity licensure).
Before you can apply for an NCEES Record, you must first be licensed by a licensing board in the United States.
Reduced paperwork, added convenience
Establishing an NCEES Record is the most efficient way to attain multistate licensure. Once you have established a Record with NCEES, you will have most—if not all—of the materials you need to apply for comity licensure in additional states and territories.
When you have a Record on file, NCEES can electronically submit your materials directly to the state licensing board on your behalf each time you apply for a license. For professionals who need to practice in multiple states, this saves time and makes the application process to the states much less complicated.
Faster turnaround for Model Law professionals
Engineers and surveyors with the Model Law designation in their NCEES record also benefit from a faster turnaround for comity licensure applications in many states.
