This is my second effort at compiling a list of individual State release notes. This is updated based on the comments on last year's post and last years results release. It's obviously incomplete. Please reply with your own notes, and any observations from the upcoming Oct 2020 release as this will help future people waiting.

Note: Most of these notes reflect the time when NCEES released to the States in batches. In Oct 2019, it appears that the results were sent to all states at the same time early in the day, and the States authorized the release at different times. 

Alabama – historically one of the first to release

Alaska –

Arizona –

Arkansas – Tends to release day 1. They occasionally send emails first

California – will release towards the end of the first day or on the second day

Colorado – Is going to make you wait a day or so. Everyone always complains about DORA

Connecticut - tends to release Day 2 or later

Delaware –

DC – Mailing jurisdiction. Will release online after all envelopes are in the mail. Usually Day 2+

Florida – tends to release on day 2

Georgia –Generally has been the last to release the last few years. Typically about 4-5 days/1 week after initial releae. You might be able to figure something out via license lookup. Names are added in an unpredictable way, and people still learn that they pass despite not seeing their name initially in the license lookup.

Hawaii – Day 4+, both mails and emails results

Idaho

Illinois – CTS state, so results get posted there first. Historically all over the calendar, could happen Day 1 or Day 5 or later

Indiana

Iowa - Tends to release on Day 1

Kansas

Kentucky

Louisiana - tends to be Day 1, occasionally day 2

Maine – tends to be early on day 1

Maryland – Prior to 2015 was a very late releaser, but since then it is one of the very first states to release

Mass – Uses CTS, so check that site. Tends to be one one of the later states. Prior to release the check-list says weird things. We haven’t been able out what -if anything- those things mean, as there is no pattern

Michigan – tends to release later in the day

Minnesota – Mailing state, results are released electronically after letters mailed. Expect to wait a few days.

Mississippi – Tends to release on day 1 or 2. Examinees may find themselves on the liscnese lookup first

Missouri

Montana – State may send an email to those who passed before general release. Release tends to happen on day 1 or 2

Nebraska

Nevada – tends to release later on day 1

New Hampshire – tends to release on day 1

New Jersey – One of the later states to release. Some examinees may be able to figure out if they passed by logging onto state website and looking at their checklist. If the item for “pass PE exam” (or similar) is checked, then it appears that the results is a pass. However, the checklists are updated in a random order and times; some people learn they pass even thought their checklist was never updated prior to the release. Also, consider moving to a better state.  ;)

New Mexico – tends to release in the afternoons on Day 1 or 2

New York – tends to release on day 1 or 2. But actually getting your license may take months

North Carolina

North Dakota

Ohio

Oklahoma - tends to release middle of Day 1

Oregon

Pennsylvania – lol, abandon all hope ye who waiting here.

Rhode Island – tends to release after a few days

South Carolina – despite NCEES being in SC, you should expect results in the afternoon of Day 1 or on Day 2

South Dakota – mailing state. Some who passed may be able to find themselves on the license lookup on day 2

Tennessee

Texas – tends to release later in the day on Day 1, or early on Day 2

Utah - tends to release on Day 1

Vermont – all over the calendar, could be day 1 could be day 4. Can happen anytime during regular business hours

Virginia

Washington – tends to release later in the day

West Virginia

Wisconsin

Wyoming

Puerto Rico – limited data, but tends to release day 2-4

Virgin Islands – limited data, but tends to release day 2-4

Guam – very limited data, but tends to release in the first week

Northern Marianas - They are a licensing jurisdiction, but we've never had someone report from there

American Samoa - N/A, they do not license PEs

Canada – varies by province, tends to be Day 1-3

International (not Canada) – results tend to be the very first to go out on Day 1

Off the top of my head: Saudi Arabia, Korea, UAE (or at least Sharaj), Egypt, Japan, Qatar, Turkey. It makes sense that other countries will piggyback off existing established infrastructure.

Ah okay, I had no idea NCEES covered PE Exams for those countries. We’ve got some nice variety there. It would be interesting to hear the perspective of an examinee from one of these countries, including their feelings on results being released 😅

I enjoy your notes about VT. Ver true in my experience.

Added for VT, it will take ~1 week for you to get your number and be officially official

Also for Maine, you'll likely find yourself in the database the day you get your notification. That's how I knew my coworker passed

Anyone from  Texas? I'm having issues with the PELS site.....wonder if they need to update it before the results. Anyone have any other ideas on how to get results on this website?

no notes is usually a good thing. It means that nothing memorable happens there from a outsider perspective. Most of the notes are negative

oh good! breathing easier (slightly)

this also basically sums up missouri as a whole... "nothing memorable happens from an outsider perspective" 😂😂
