Official NBCE transcripts bearing the NBCE seal are sent only to state or government agencies that license doctors of chiropractic. All other transcripts, such as those sent to an individual, do not bear the official NBCE seal and are designated unofficial transcripts.
Transcripts of an examinee’s most recent passing scores are released by the NBCE only upon written authorization. The NBCE recommends that examinees keep their original score-reporting letters to maintain the history of their scores. The NBCE does NOT release scores that fall below the passing score of 375, unless specifically authorized to do so by the examinee.
There is no charge for the first transcript request processed by the NBCE. Subsequent transcript requests are $25 each. Please allow two weeks for processing of a transcript request.
The NBCE does not certify / license chiropractors. As a testing organization, we prepare and administer national board examinations that state licensing boards use in their evaluation of a doctor for licensure. It is the state board, in the state where he/she will practice that reviews each candidate’s transcripts, scores and other pertinent documents from a variety of sources to determine licensure eligibility and then issues a license to practice. Please contact the state licensing board where a doctor practices to verify licensure/certification.
For a transcript of a doctor’s NBCE records showing exams completed, please submit your request to the NBCE at 901 54th Avenue, Greeley, CO 80634. Be sure to indicate the doctor’s full name, date of birth and enclose a signed transcript request form. The fee is $25 paid to the NBCE. Please allow five business days for processing.
