I dunno how it works up there. Our receptionist said they are a pain to get ahold of.

I know I've never got in contact with a person no matter how many times I've called.

Seems Email is the way to go for contacting the board

My stuff has been received and will be reviewed at the next board meeting.

It was about 2 weeks after I got my pass notice that my license number was posted on the IDFPR website back in January.

Ok, maybe you can help me. My timeline is below, I'm just wondering what the holdup is.

-I passed the PE exam in Oct. 2010,

-Had my experience complete at the end of May sent in my application and it was denied (It took them 2 weeks to deny it) since I didn't turn in experience forms for my co-op (they were certified on my college transcript, why do I need VE-PNG forms but either way).

-Sent in those 3 VE-PNG forms and IDFPR received them July 6, I'm still waiting. I had not heard of having my experience approved by the board but is that what I'm waiting on, and if that is the case why do licenses get approved everyday?

Thank you in advance!

They review them at board meetings. I sent my packet in June 17th.

The next meeting is scheduled for August 10th in which my information will be reviewed and probably yours as well.

They are still getting used to the whole taking the test before experience gain thing would be my guess. Summer months mean vacation and less people in the office which is probably short staffed to begin with.

Certified via transcript doesn't mean anything, they want the forms filled out...its just the way government works.

Call or email to see that status.

Thank you! I didn't realize that was a step that had to be done.

I still wonder why license numbers are posted almost daily, surely they aren't still putting them up from the 06/23 meeting. Also I do not think they are all reciprocation licenses because plenty of them are from IL, oh well. :)

Thanks again.

Nevermind I got a letter in the mail today that my application was rejected.

"Your application was reviewed as a non-approved engineering degree as the Bachelor degree engineering program from Louisville is not ABET approved and Illinois law does not recognize the ABET approved Master Degree engineering program to meet the requirements."

I'm deficient 12 hours in math (calculus and analytical geometry)

yay

I dunno I'm going to have to call.

Section 1380.210 Approved Engineering Program

Mathematics (beyond trigonometry) – 15 hours.

Physics and Chemistry – 15 hours.

Engineering Sciences – 30 hours.

Engineering Design – 15 hours.

Humanities/Social Sciences – 15 hours.

Is what it calls for...at Louisville we called Calculus, Engineering Analysis 1, 2, 3 which is 12 hours

I was required to take Calculus 1, 2, and 3 and then Intro to Differential Equations. My last semester I took one extra Math course (Intermediate Diff Eq) and was awarded a minor in Mathematics. Yes, lots of math!! And I barely use any of it nowadays :smileyballs:

Yeah I had all of that.

I contacted Louisville and they are going to send a letter to the Illinois Board to hopefully clear the confusion.
