Anybody know when we get the license number? I don't think I'm too confident until we get a license number. Thanks.

With CTS notifying electrically, the state is usually several days to a week behind that in uploading the license numbers.

NCEES has released the SE II exam results to CTS as of TODAY. Not sure how long it takes CTS to get them updated so they show up on the website.... They are not up yet.

I did not send in the written application before taking the exam in October. Can I send that in now? Did everyone already mail this in before the exam?

I looked at things quickly when signing up for the exam and thought that the online application was a substitute for the written application. Now I'm worried my license will be delayed....help please!

Also I paid around $280 for the PE exam, now I have to pay an additional $100 for endorsement?

Oops I see endorsement is for someone who already has a PE license...what do I apply for then...examination? The thought of that is a little scary. Having to pass once is good enough for me!

usually it is $380 from the get go, $280 to CTS for the test and $100 to the state so they can review your experience and all that jazz before being approved to even sit for the test. But the Oct test was the first time you could take the test without first having the 4 yrs experience, and they didn't revise the instructions ahead of time. so there is a big gray area about it all. You will likely have to submit the written application and $100 so the board can review your experience before a # will be issued. CTS does not determine if you are qualified. so I would say yes your license is going to be delayed. call the board tomorrow to see what they suggest or wait for the letter from the state.

Illinois SEII exam results are posted online at CTS.... I passed! Thanks God, because there's no way I was going to retake the full 24 hours again. Good luck.

Thanks, I emailed and they responded that I should fill out the written application and send it in now. Do you think its ok for me to get my transcripts sent directly to the state or does it have to be sent with my application as a whole?

I had them sent directly to the state, they will be in a sealed envelop anyways. As with your references provide them a stamped envelope so they can mail the form in.

For those of you that have had multiple goes at the test in Illinois, how long did it take to receive your letter from CTS after they posted the results on their website?

Anybody from IL get their PE license number as a result of the October 2010 PE exam yet? It's been a week since the results, and I'm getting a wee bit worried.

Nope, but I got a paper letter from CTS yesterday confirming the results from online.

I think its too early to worry about not getting the license number. Give it some more time.

i think the delay with #'s is now they just can't plug and chug with the info CTS gives them. THis is the first time they are allowing people to take the test before gaining the experience and the first time they required registration with NCEES in addition to the state. So they now have to weed through and take out those who don't have the required experience and those people who just registered with NCEES and not the state ahead of time like they probably should have.

Sucks for those who paid the state upfront, but that is guess as to the delay.

Thanks for your wise input Snickered3. Normally I would just wait patiently since I pretty much know my final result. But my company just announced future terminations, so I want to put up my updated my resume as soon as I can. Don't want a company to try to verify it online and then disregard me for being a liar. The four week window that CTS is saying I should receive my license is not excatly ideal, but oh well...it is what it is.

Well, according to the status page at Continental Testing, I passed the PE exam! However, after reading through this thread, I am in the same boat as some other guys who never submitted an app/fee to IDFPR. I am in the process of filling that out as I type, along with a transcript request and the verification of employment form (which needs to be filled out by my supervisor). Am I missing anything else I need to do? If so, I'd appreciate a heads up now, so I don't have any more unwanted surprises, LOL.

What a pain this has turned into. It will all be worth it in the end though ;)

I'm glad I'm not the only one...I was starting to question whether or not I should even be issued a PE license!

Congrats!!!

Mine is not listed :( I guess I should have turned in the written application before the exam...oops!

I wonder if they will wait till the April 11 results come in to approve me...or maybe they process applications more than twice a year?

i think they review apps year round...or else those applying for comity would have to wait until test cycles.

hopefully they will write revised instructions for the next go round to avoid this from happening again...but not likely.

I hope this is the case as well. Don't think this could have been more vague or non-descriptive.

License look up on the IDFPR website.

In case you are interested. I'd say all that passed, and have their paper work completed, should now have a number assigned. I just looked on the IDFPR site and I was listed. Mine is for the SE license, so I would guess PE candidates should certainly be up by now.
