Hello All,

I am applying my PE license in New York State. This is my initial license - I took and passed PE exam in Texas but I didn't apply for PE in Texas. I am curious if I can use NECCS record to complete the application. The NY board Form 1 gives me two options. One is to apply by NYS boards with several forms, the other is using NCEES Record. However, NCEES clearly states that for initial license, NY is not in the list of states that can use NCEES Record for initial license. But I also asked NY boards, they said it's ok to use NCEES and they will review it.....

So, everyone with the same situation as me?? Any suggestions?

Thanks

I just got my license in Texas. I updated NCEES record to file comity with NY. All the document has been forwarded to NYS Board for approval. I filled out the online application form and chose that NCEES will provide the verified records. Any question ask.

They recently sent the letter asking for 2 more years of engineering design experiences. I had 14 years of construction experience however, I had to recreate 2 years experience with design experience and have endorser sign it and send it directly to NYS Board. They wanted me to use form 4 and 4A. Good thing is that you can email them I sent them last week and waiting for reply. hope they won't bug me anymore.

That is the biggest disconnect I see with allowing the NCEES application. The expereince section of the NYS application has a lot more that is required.

That sucks. I applied (comity) around mid of April. Haven't heard anything from them yet. I am guessing it's going to take a while.

Hi, just an update. I got my application approval on May 19th, which is 36 days after I submitted the online application. The NCEES gives me 3 year 11 months experience and I have a MS degree also. Although NCEES only allows to write maximum 700 words of detailed work experience, I don't have any trouble with the board.

It probably takes 6-8 weeks from my experience. Mine got approved after 36 days of submission.

Thanks. That really helps to know. I have only heard negative things so far. Good to hear something positive.

Is this to sit for NCEES exam or applying license from other state through comity? I am applying for NY through comity as they don't have reciprocity and I guess they don't give much preferences to other states licenses (especially TX) in my case.

It's my initial license in NY. I applied as to sit for exam in NCEES but the NYS boards processed as licensure.

I finally got a reponse from NY CompED, because my bachelors degree was from a different country, they requested a lot of additional information. It really sucks to have a bachelors scrutinized so much when I had forwarded my NCEES credential eval, two masters degrees done in US. It almost feels like the board does not want me to get the PE license.

Just an update, my name finally showed up on the online verfircation portal for NYSED. It took six months from the date of application to get the comity license approved. Most of the delay was due to CompEd and their choice to discriminate people with undergraduate degree from a different country.
