Military accommodations

If you are currently serving as an active duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces, you can request to take an exam in a state or territory different from the one in which you are applying for licensure.


You will have the opportunity to make this request during the online exam registration process with NCEES (deadline: 3:00 p.m. EDT on August 30, 2018).

Requesting alternate exam location

When registering, select the state where you are applying for licensure and complete your registration as if you were sitting for the exam in that state. During registration, answer yes when asked if you need special accommodations. After you have registered, you will receive an email with a link where you can provide information about where you would like to sit for the exam.

Supporting documentation

You will also be required to upload or submit documentation indicating that you will be stationed outside the state where you have registered. You can upload the documentation after registering, when you indicate where you wish to sit, or send it directly to


After your request has been considered, NCEES will notify you of any alternate military testing granted.
