PENNSYLVANIA - RESULTS

Recommended Posts

Guest jcc222

I'm told that PA has a habit of being one of the slower states to return results to applicants. I wanted to have a place for those of us impatiently waiting for our PE results in PA to vent and share info. Has anyone heard any news regarding the PA results?

From my friends who took the test in previous years they say that the results usually come out right after New Year's.

Did your friends happen to mention whether or not PA updates their license verification website before we would receive our letters?

I would expect the results between Christmas and New Years but closer to New Years and the website doesn't get updated until after you get your letters usually because they have to give you a number which takes even more time. Keep being patient our time will come. :mail-296:

I am thinking after the first of the year due to a large majority of state employees taking off the week between Christmas and New Years. What is another week when we waited this long?

I would guess you'll have your pass/fail letter within the next 2 weeks.

However, don't get too excited. This past spring it took +/-61 days after receiviving the pass letter for us to recieve our license numbers and for the website to be updated.

Good luck and hopefully it will be quicker this time, Andrew

I took the PE in April 07 and I didn't get my letter until 4th of July weekend, then they didn't issue my certification until 9/26/07.....so when you get the pass letter hang in there as the waiting hasn't finished....

So you're saying that my tactic of gleefully exploiting a loophole in Ohio law such that I can get licensed there and then get reciprocity in PA (where I actually live) might actually work?

Cool.

Yep... they didn't come yet and probably won't for another week or so. PA is generally toward the end of the list (except CA).

PA, CT, NJ, VA, PR and Iowa are under EES agency. NCEES send them our results, one state at a time. Then EES use their own template letter to send the results to each one of us.

One of us should call or send them an email to see if a "nice lady" say something. I am not goig to be that guy because I already did it for the April results. The "nice lady" simply lie to me: she told me that results will be in around two weeks. At the same time - same day my wife found the result in my mailbox: failed.

I emailed the State yesterday and asked to when I might receive my results and long story short. I am just waiting for the results to come in. Lady e-mailed me back and said that acording to her records I still had to take the Principles and Practice Exam.

From friends in the office, their results came first week of the new year so I guess we will just have to wait.

I was talking to one of the engineers down the hall who took the test 2 years ago. His certificate and letter were both dated December 21st and he received his letter in central PA on Christmas Eve. I guess we can take that for what it's worth and hope we all get our results so we can have a merry christmas like he did.

I live in NE Pa. also known as the land that time forgot so I am assuming that I can add at least a day or two after everybody else in the state hears.

This is wtaht the board replied to me when I asked who will be sending the PE exam results in PA.

""Engineering examination results are mailed to candidates by Engineering Examination Services out of Nashville, TN within 10 days of receipt of the results from the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), the owner and scorer of the engineering and land surveying examinations.

The same examination contractor mails Land Surveying examination results to candidates within a week of receipt of the results from NCEES and PSLS – the owner and scorer of the State Principles and Practice Examination.

**Note: You are NOT permitted to practice as a professional engineer or professional land surveyor until you have received your license from the Board. Allow approximately 90 days from receipt of your result letter for processing of a license.""

It's funny, last night I was talking with my wife about how the wait is killing me. I e-mail her everyday to see if the results are there yet. Well yesterday she says, "If the do come I'm going to open them before you get home. If you pass I'll stay home, if you don't I'm going shopping."

She just wants to save herself from the string of expletives I will unleash if I fail. I will make Ralphie from a Christmas Story look like a Choir Boy.
