Applying for Licensure as a Professional Engineer:

Do not submit your application for licensure until after you have passed the NCEES Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam in the desired discipline.

Once you have passed the appropriate NCEES PE exam and have the required qualifying experience, submit your application for licensure using the online BPELSG Connect Portal.  For additional information, view Use BPELSG Connect to Complete and Submit a Professional Engineer (PE) Application.
