NCARB final review and transmittal timeline?

My experience:

August 12th last exam
August 19th last pass

..... few phone calls to ncarb and NYSED and contradicting information every time I called.....
One form for NYSED needed to be resent in meanwhile

September 6th - my last name and license number popped up on the verification website and after I came home there was mail waiting with the license documents.


Total 18 days from pass to license in my hand in NY State.

Wow! Great turn around Kiedys.Zdam .... I took my last exam on July 13th and still don't have my license number. I got my email this morning saying everything has been reviewed and approved for licensure, but its been a long journey. I was as squeaky of a wheel with NYS and NCARB as i could possibly be, but I guess it really is luck of the draw.

Received my NCARB Certification, which was more inline with the experience everyone else here has. I was told that it would take a month. Called a month later and said I was calling after waiting a month. I was emailed my Cert. number within an hour. I think they just sit on it until you bug them lol.

Took my last test first Monday in October. got the pass back a week and half later. a week later got a notification that NCARB was formally reviewing my record. a week after that I got notification it was approved. next day they sent my info to my (direct registration) state and told me they were doing so. so it's been about a month since my final test. Now it's up to my state.

Just yesterday I got an email notification from NCARB that they are transmitting my records to my state...3 weeks after I received my license and 2 months after my last pass.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

December 16th - Received final pass.
January 19th - NCARB Transmittal of Record to state.
State confirmed receipt and has everything they need. (State had everything they need aside from the NCARB record a week after the pass)
State is saying it takes 3 more weeks to process......it will be about 2 months waiting...

Anyone have any experience with Missouri ? I understand from reading this thread that the timelines depend on the volume of applications at the time that ours is submitted, but wondering if anyone from Missouri can share their experience.

I am also wondering if one's presence is required, for example for some notarization of signature etc. The application form from the State website suggests that it has to be notarized, but the NCARB automated process doesn't indicate any such thing, making the whole thing seem automatic, except for phone call reminders that several people reference.

I took all my exams except for 1 in Missouri, and all my AXP / IDP was completed in Missouri. However, I now live abroad, but have a local Missouri address.
So I am asking these questions to try to figure out if that may cause any complications. Thank you in advance for any tips or advice.

Has anyone had any experience with NCARB and Colorado in getting their license thru education and experience? I'm trying to gauge timeline from last test results and actually getting the license. Thanks!

I posted a topic on the NCARB 5.0 Community forum expressing confusion about this process after reading this thread, many others, and not finding any solid information on the NCARB website. Here is what they told me:

The process is basically automated these days. A day or two after getting your final "pass" notification, and assuming you have finished IDP/AXP, you will get an email from NCARB saying "congratulations you have completed all requirements..." yada yada. At that point you are put in a queue for your entire record to be reviewed to ensure that you meet the requirements of your jurisdiction before records are sent to your jurisdiction. This process takes "30 business days." Once your record has been approved you are put in a queue to have your record sent to your state. This process takes "10 to 14 business days."

Take the time frames for what you will. This is NCARB, and you have read this thread. It seems that people experience anything from having this process take a couple of days to it dragging out for months.

I am getting my license through experience and examination, NOT with an accredited degree, so I asked if this would cause my record not to automatically enter the system. She said no. However, she also recommended following up with customer service once you get your final test score to make sure you are in the queue. I don't know if she was saying this unique to me, or that everyone should do this.

One thing I forgot to ask about was how the Direct Registration Program affects any of this. My state, Arizona, uses the direct registration program. And the NCARB website on the program doesn't really make clear how it affects the process for candidates. http://www.ncarb.org/ARE/Getting-Started-With-the-ARE/Direct-Registration-Program.aspx

To add to the Mix: My current experience with NYS: Will update when the torturers give me more information.

Last Pass: 12/31/16
IDP Completed and Signed off on: 6/24/17
Email the state make sure they have everything. Email telling me that once they receive my NCARB record it will be put in the cue for review: 6/27/17
Record Transmitted to State: 7/6/17
Wait two weeks and then call to check up. Even though NCARB tells me that my record was opened and reviewed on the 6th, it is not added to my state record until: 7/24/17 (What the hell, so you read it but can't take 2 seconds to add it to my record and put it in the cue?)
Email showing recommendation for license: 8/7/17 (I called them mid way to nag and remind them that they screwed up my application)
License # online: 8/9/17
Happy to be done! WOO!!!

Compared to others here, it sounds like my experience is on the longer end for NYS...
Finished AXP in August of 2016; finished ARE in October of 2016; met NYSED experience requirement in June 2017.

6/16/17 - Requested NCARB transmittal
6/22/17 - Received NCARB transmittal confirmation
6/23/17 - NYS confirmed receipt of NCARB record
7/7/17 - NCARB re-transmitted AXP portion of record because initial transmittal included a DIFFERENT person's (!) (and I lose my place in NYS' review line)
7/13/17 - I learn of NCARB's mistake when I call NYS to check in
7/17/17 - NCARB re-transmitted my entire record (without my consent) after I emailed customer support to confirm that they had sent everything my state needed. (I lose my place in NYS' review line again)
7/20/17 - NYS reviewed my experience and asked for clarification from my current supervisor; supervisor responds on 6/21/17 and I'm sent to the end of the queue again!
7/25/17 - NYS emails me saying they received my supervisor's response, and I should expect to hear back in another 3-4 weeks!
8/4/17 - Called NYS to check in; was told my application was in 'final review' and I should expect an email in one week.
8/7/17 - Received email about being recommended for licensure.
8/11/17 - Called NYS after seeing that charmedserenity3 (who received the licensure recommendation email on the same day as me) was licensed on 8/9/17. Was told I am now in the "licensing queue," and should expect to see my license number "next week," with paper certificate to follow 7-10 business days afterwards.
8/14/17 - Still waiting... at the end of this week, it will have been 2 months from the start of the transmittal process for me. Hopefully I will have received the license number by then?

Lots of waiting... not sure where things went wrong for me/why others' wait times were shorter...

June 22, 2017 notified of my final passing exam
June 24, 2017 NCARB sends the congratulations email
August 1, 2017 NCARB transmits my record to WA
August 1, 2017 WA issues my license number

I applied for my license in early July, probably right after the 4th. So everything was filed and paid for from the State's perspective. They were just waiting on NCARB.

8/28. ARE Final Completion Date
9/9. NCARB sends congratulatory email on passing final ARE. Message states record placed in queue to review.
9/18. Called NCARB to check status. NCARB says it could take up to 30 business days to review. After confirming I intended to pursue NCARB certification, was told not to renew my record and that it has a grace period before lapsing.
9/22. Called NCARB to check status. I was informed my record has not yet been placed in the review queue. The rep was really polite and reviewed my record the same day. Hopefully my jurisdiction will have it in 7-10 days!
9/26. Called my state licensing board to check if there's anything besides NCARB holding up my application. I found out there's a 5-10week wait from the time NCARB transmits my record and when my license is issued. :brick:
9/27. Notification NCARB record transmitted to state.
10/5. Called state board asking about status. They said would get to it that day or the next one.
10/16. Called state board. They may start it by the end of the week.
10/19. Checked state board website. They haven't issued any licenses since 10/16 and are averaging about 1-2 per day.

6.21 - Finished IDP hours after having finished my last ARE division in December. Immediately get email from NCARB saying that they will be reviewing my NCARB record and that it could take up to 30 days before that process is completed, followed by another 7-10 days to actually send it to my state board (AZ).
~ I was patient for about 3 weeks before I finally read a bunch of forum posts and decided to call NCARB to inquire my status. I then called every week after just to see if I would get a different response. After 30 business days had passed, I was done being patient. They kept telling me it was in the queue and they apologized for the wait. In the last week I called every other day because they told me that they were going to hand it off to the reviewer and see if they could get it done that same day since I had waited an unusually long time. After the third call that week, an hour later...
9.7 - I finally get an email saying that they have completed the review and will be sending my NCARB record within 7-10 business days.
Today - 9.18 - Still no confirmation the NCARB record has been sent. This Thursday will be 10 business days since the review was completed. I think I will unfortunately have to call them multiple times this week again just to hit the SEND button.

For anyone that is having delays in their record being reviewed/transmitted, don't be shy about calling NCARB. It's been pretty clear to me that the only way for them to actually get stuff done is if they are politely pestered about it and often.

EDIT: Today, 9.20, I called NCARB again this morning as we neared business day 9 of waiting for the record to be transmitted to my state board. Turned out that my record was in the queue to be transmitted by the end of the day - what timing! About 5 hours later I received an email from NCARB saying they had sent my record to the state board. Hopefully won't be long for the state board to review and issue my license since they've had everything else for over 2 months.

Update to my last post: 2 months and 4 days after I submitted my final hours, I was notified by the state board that my application was complete and had been processed. Hard copy license to come in the mail shortly, but I checked the online database just to be sure. My name and license number are there. More anticlimactic than I thought it would be but I'm happy and relieved to have finished it. Good luck to everyone as they head down the stretch!

How often is reasonable to check up on the status of your state license submission? When I applied I was told 5-10wks. Monday will be 5 wks. There's 1 person handling all the applications for my state board. Do you think following up once a week would do more harm then good? I'd imagine if there's 1 person approving all the licenses and you annoy them you could keep getting put at the bottom of the pile.
