Can I take the PE Exam
Posted 16 November 2011 - 03:20 AM
I've been working full-time under a licensed engineer since May of '08 not to mention all five years (summers) during school under licensed engineers. Guess you can say these are co-ops but I worked during fall as well at times during school years.
Can I take the exam this upcoming April and just wait to obtain registration in August?

Best for you to check with the MI state board. Their website is a pain in the arse (I've been there to get my EIT certification paperwork); but the information is there if you can find it.

I was in a similar situation, not for the PE exam, but for completing a diploma program. I finished my independent major project after the end of the spring semester because I had a funded summer internship so I knew I was going to stick around the college for a few more months. When it was completed, I was told that I wouldn't receive my official diploma until the following spring because they only issue graduating diplomas on an annual basis, not semestered. It didn't bother me, but I have to officially say I received my diploma almost a year after I actually completed the work. The same may hold true for you, so they'll probably won't make an exception for your circumstance, but verify anyway.

Another thing to consider: In Colorado, you have to have the ENTIRE amount of required experience in place at the time of application. They don't count the "future" experience you would get between when you file the application and when you sit for the exam. I graduated in May 2003 and had to wait until the October 2007 application deadline (June 1st) for the exam. Even then, they made me wait to take the April 2008 exam because I started that job on June 5th, and the deadline was June 1st so I only had 3.95 year experience.

I received a written confirmation from the State Licensing Board of Michigan that I am eligible to take the upcoming April Exam. They are counting my work experience starting in May. Apparently, I am allowed a 2 month window after the exam to prove I have the 4 years experience.
Then I called NCEES and they informed me if the State gave permission I can include the letter when registering and I will be allowed to take the exam.
I'm definately excited I can take the exam in April. Hopefully they won't decline my registration even with the written confirmation.

I'm still a little concerned because of what my diploma says but hopefully the letter holds up and there won't be any issues when the time comes to registration or licensing if I pass.
