DAPE 2022-2023 Annual Report


DAPE accepts and reviews applications to take the PE exam year-round (it typically takes 4-6 weeks to process an application). Candidates should apply with DAPE before paying to take the exam on the NCEES website, as you will need DAPE's approval before you can schedule the exam. You can read more about the computer-based PE exam transition here.

Candidates that are interested in taking the PE exam prior to the completion of your work experience requirement, also known as "Decoupling," should e-mail office@dape.org for further information.  

Note: any degree that requires an NCEES credentials evaluation must be reviewed by our examining committee, which meets the last Wednesday of each month.  

Individuals that need DAPE to verify a license or exam can request the verification via NCEES, or email the form required by the state where you are applying to office@dape.org. There is no charge for license/exam verifications.
