Process for Requesting a Waiver of the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam when Applying for Licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE):

You must submit your application for review and approval by the Board before the Board will authorize you to take the NCEES professional-level exam in the discipline in which you have applied.

You must submit your application by the final filing dates published on the Board's website.

You must allow the Board a minimum of 60 days from when you submit your application to process your application. Do not contact the Board within the initial 60-day period to ask about the status of your application. If you have not received any communication from the Board after the initial 60-day period, you may contact the Board's Licensing Unit at (916) 263-2222 or BPELSG.Application.Information@dca.ca.gov.

Do not contact the Board to verify receipt of your application. If you wish to have proof that your application was received, you need to use a delivery method that provides tracking and delivery confirmation.
